Greenville, SC (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Brightstar Care of Greenville and Spartanburg is encouraging donations of gently used goods to be auctioned at Fairview Road Self-Storage 20 Berryblue Court, Fairview Road, Simpsonville, South Carolina. The popularity of Storage Wars on TV has heightened the awareness and popularity of self storage auctions. Brightstar Care and Fairview Road Self-Storage have teamed up to sponsor a self-storage auction to help fight Alzheimer's. Net proceeds will go to The Alzheimer's Association, the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.
Donations can be dropped off at Fairview Road Self Storage weekdays from 9a.m. to 5p.m. and Saturdays from 9a.m. to 1p.m., now through September 29th. The auction will be held on September 30th 2013 at 11:30 a.m.
Alzheimer's is widespread. A majority of Americans know someone with Alzheimer’s. As lifespans increase, the number of cases will increase since the frequency doubles for every 5 years beyond age 65.
“Our caregivers at Brightstar Care witness the effects of this heartbreaking disease daily. We have been looking for ways to intensify the battle against this all-too-common disease and the storage auction is one of them,” said Molly Stroud, Director of Nursing for Brightstar Care in Greenville and Spartanburg.
In addition to the self-storage auction, the Brightstar Care staff will participate in the Walk To End Alzheimer’s on October 19th 2013 at Greenville County Square, 301 University Ridge, Greenville, South Carolina. Registration begins at 8:00am and the walk starts at 9:00am. Donations for the Brightstar Care Team may be made online at the Alzheimer's Association website http://www.alz.org.
