Our service is an integral part of the community. It is a hub of activity for both businesses and families. Small businesses use our facilities to operate their companies. From pharmaceutical sales reps to internet-based businesses, small business operators need our facilities and staff members to help them run their businesses.
Similarly, families need our facilities and staff to help them move across town, to expand their homes, or simply to clean out their attics or garages. Without our storage space and professionally trained staff to help, citizens of our community would struggle to get through their lives. We recognize the value and importance of our role in the community. And we recognize the importance of our community and its members to the health and well-being of our company.
As such, maintaining good community relations is critical to the success of our business. Our people must reflect a positive image and be integral members in the community. They have children that attend the local schools, they are members of the PTA, and they participate in the local Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, our managers are actively involved with local civic organizations. We believe in giving back to the community.
Typically, our facilities reserve up to 5% of our units for use by local nonprofit and community organizations. What we give to the community comes back to us many times over. If we are good stewards of the health and well-being of our community, our community will do the same for us.
