FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Calgary, Alberta, June 4, 2020 – StoreSmart Self-Storage today announced a donation of $1,600 in support of local animal welfare organizations, representing 2019’s proceeds from the company’s “You Rent, We Donate” campaign.

Since launching the $1 Move-In Pledge in 2014, StoreSmart Self-Storage has been donating one dollar from every self-storage unit rental in support of local SPCAs and Humane Societies. With today’s donation announcement, StoreSmart Self-Storage has raised more than $10,000 in support of local SPCAs and Humane Societies, including: the Bow Valley SPCA in Canmore, the Central Alberta Humane Society in Red Deer, the Cochrane and Area Humane Society in Cochrane, and the Edmonton Humane Society in Edmonton.

“We are very proud to support these organizations, as they do terrific work through their education and adoption programs,” said Kim Sterling, President and Chief Operating Officer of StoreSmart Self-Storage. “Animals have such a wonderful ability to lift our spirits, particularly during times of stress like the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the opportunity to be involved with these organizations, and for the chance to support our four-legged friends that add so much to our daily lives. Animal welfare is a tremendous cause that really resonates with our team members and customers,” adding that many StoreSmart employees are enthusiastic pet ‘parents’ themselves.

StoreSmart Self-Storage also collects in-store donations on behalf of these organizations and provides storage space as needed. In 2019, the company donated storage space to the Bow Valley SPCA and the Central Alberta Humane Society.

SPCAs and Humane Societies help sick, injured, neglected or abused animals by rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing them. They provide medical treatments and educate adults and children about responsible pet ownership. Anyone wishing to make an additional donation to any of the above organizations may do so by visiting any StoreSmart Self-Storage location or by visiting www.StoreSmart.ca.

Based in Calgary, Alberta, StoreSmart Self-Storage has been proudly serving Albertans since 2006. Locally owned and operated, with five locations in Red Deer, Canmore, Cochrane, Edmonton and Sherwood Park, the company offers short and long term self-storage solutions for residential and business users, as well as other relocation conveniences including mail box rentals, U-Haul rentals, and the sale of boxes and moving supplies.
