Everett Charity benefits from recent Storage Auctions Buzz
Under the terms of the partnership, Everett Downtown Storage has devoted a storage unit within each of their Everett storage facilities to be used exclusively as a collection point for donated goods. Existing storage renters, visitors to the storage facility, local residents and businesses, can donate items in good condition to the charity storage unit while also receiving a tax-deductible receipt. Donated goods will then be sold via auction at the time of the company’s next auction sale. 100% of the funds generated from the sale of the donated goods will be distributed across three different non-profit organizations: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County, Kure It Cancer Research, and the National Self Storage Scholarship Foundation.
“Reality TV has cast a spotlight on storage auctions leading to record attendance and auction sale income for our businesses. Although we have donated space to numerous community non-profits over the years, this is another unique way we can help with financial contributions to support worthy causes. We are excited to be a part of what Charity Storage is doing on a national scale and to be able to direct the bulk those donation dollars back to kids in our local community. “ says Pat Sievers, owner of Everett Downtown Storage.
