StoreRight Self Storage in Lecanto, FL really cares about our community, which is not just Lecanto, but really all of Citrus County. We feel very strongly about doing what we can to donate our time and resources to various charitable groups in Citrus County. We are the self storage facility that cares!
Just within the past few months we have donated FREE STORAGE gift certificates to a number of charities. If a charitable organization approaches us, we’re happy to donate a gift certificate for the charity to raffle off. The money raised by the raffle, or the live/silent auction, goes directly to the charity. We only ask that the recipient of the gift certificate pay our normal one time administrative fee at the onset of their Storage Rental.
We have donated gift certificates to the following charities recently: Tera’s Legacy Poker Run to Benefit Herry’s Kids Hospice, Citrus County Education Foundation, the Citrus County Builders Association’s Jim Blackshear Memorial Golf Outing to Benefit the Boys & Girls Club and the Seven Rivers Christian School in Lecanto.
In addition we also donate our time: I volunteered at the Realtor’s Association of Citrus County’s Annual Golf Tournament to benefit Habitat for Humanity. That was a fun, all day event! I also spent a very cold (for Florida) morning volunteering at the annual Strawberry Festival in Floral City at the Hospice Tent. We sold strawberry shortcake with the proceeds going to Hospice.
We also donate household items, clothing, etc… to a variety of local charities. Ocasionally when a tenant moves out, they leave unwanted items in their units. After contacting the tenant and verifying that they no longer want the items; we arrange to donate them to one of the local Citrus County charities.
We also let our tenants know that at any time, even if they are not moving out of their self storage units; we will gladly accept any charitable donations they wish to make. My staff and I also donate our own personal belongings that we no longer need. During the past few months, between tenant donations, our own donations and abandoned unit items; we have given clothing, pet bedding, a bird cage, multiple pieces of furniture, television sets, household items, etc…..to the Citrus County Animal Shelter, Daystar Citrus, Nature Coast Ministries, and our #1 charity: Yard Sale for the Troops.
I also try to attend as many charitable fundraising events as I can. I recently attended the annual Cooking for a Cause event held at the Crystal River Mall. That was a fundraiser to benefit Jessie’s Place, the Children’s Advocacy Center. Very worthwhile cause. For those of you who may not know, Jessie’s Place is named after Jessica Lunsford, the young girl tragically abducted and killed in Homosassa, FL a few years ago. We in Citrus County feel very strongly about the Children’s Advocacy Center.
Coming up on my calendar in May is the annual dinner to benefit the Boys & Girls Club. That promises to be a fun evening. It will be held at the local college right down the street from StoreRight Self Storage. A group of the ladies from my business networking group: Suncoast Business Masters, will be there to support the Boys & Girls Club. I am looking forward to this upcoming event at the College of Central Florida.
