SpareFoot Launches Storage Industry Fund

for Disaster Relief

 

SpareFoot, which operates the country’s largest online marketplace for self-storage units, has established the SpareFoot Storage Industry Disaster Relief Fund to help victims of the recent outbreak of tornadoes in the South and Midwest and to assist victims of future disasters.

SpareFoot invites self-storage operators, self-storage vendors and other companies in the storage industry to contribute to the fund to help victims of the recent deadly tornadoes. To donate to the fund, visit http://selfstora.ge/SpareFootGives.

Through the Crowdrise fundraising platform, all proceeds will go directly to the American Red Cross for disaster relief.

"The recent tornadoes devastated so many communities in the South and Midwest. Storage facilities that are part of our network operate in many of these communities,” SpareFoot CEO Chuck Gordon said. "We thought the best way SpareFoot could help would be to set up this fund for the storage industry to pool money and collectively show that the industry cares about victims of these tornadoes and future disasters.”
