Categories: california, Charity, Events, long beach, Self Storage

Be sure to head on down to South Street Self Storage in Long Beach, California on August 26th, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, to eat some delicious bar-b-que and help our community’s children get a better education! How, you might ask? By bringing school supplies with you to donate before you chow down on burgers and hotdogs!

Seven years ago, the team at South Street Self Storage began this now yearly tradition with a simple goal: help as many children get what they need to go to school, no matter how small. That first year, in 2010, raised 15 backpacks. Last year the South Street team raised more than 100 and we want to do even better this year.
