Back-to-School Drive for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America

Southern Self Storage recently held a back-to-school supply drive benefiting the local Boys and Girls Clubs of America in cities near our 4 Georgia and 12 Louisiana facilities. We’re proud to partner with this fantastic organization to support its mission to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

About the Boys and Girls Clubs of America

The Boys and Girls Clubs is a national nonprofit organization that provides voluntary after-school programs for young people. According to its website, Boys and Girls Clubs’ vision is to “assure success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors.” Their goal is to help all members get on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future while “demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.” Their headquarters is in Atlanta, not too far from the areas that Southern Self Storage serves.

The Back to-School Drive with Southern Self Storage

During the Back-To-School Supply Drive for the Boys and Girls Clubs, people could donate school supplies to children in need. The drive lasted two weeks, from July 18, 2021, to July 31, 2021. We collected items like notebooks, glue, pencils, markers, and art supplies. Community members participated in our supply drive by dropping off donations at one of the following Southern Self Storage locations:

  • Albany, GA
  • Valdosta, GA
  • Thomasville, GA
  • Reserve, LA
  • LaPlace, LA
  • Luling, LA
  • Gretna, LA
  • Belle Chasse, LA
  • Arabi, LA
  • Chalmette, LA
  • Slidell, LA

We look forward to more charitable events like this one in Southern Self Storage‘s future. Keep checking back for updates and information on ways you can give back to your community! In the meantime, check out a couple of the social media posts from local Boys and Girls Clubs chapters below:
