Door to Door Storage, Inc., an industry leader in portable storage and moving, will participate for the 12th year in the Toys for Joy program. Door to Door Storage® will contribute eight storage containers to sort and store donated toys and non-perishable food items for children and families facing tight budgets this holiday season. Each container is 8 feet long by 5 feet wide and 7 feet tall, providing a total of 2,240 cubic feet of storage space. This year the toy collection effort is being led by Justin Schauer, a Kent firefighter, member of the Kent Firefighters Association and the 2012 Coordinator of Toys for Joy.

“Door to Door™ is pleased to participate once again in this tradition of helping the Toys for Joy program,” said Tracey Kelly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Door to Door Storage. “It’s one small way the Door to Door team can help assist families and children in our community who need it most.”
