In the spirit of community, Apple Self Storage will be donating a portion of the proceeds from every new storage rental from September to November to the ABLE Network, a non-profit organization that assists young adults with intellectual disabilities through a series of support programs.
The self-storage provider, with 15 facilities spread throughout Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, has set a goal of $6,000. During September, October and November, $5 from every move-in at every facility will directly benefit ABLE Network participants such as 22-year-old Doug, who has put his workplace training into action at the Apple Self Storage head office.
As a frequent partner of local charities and support groups, Apple Self Storage recognizes the importance of responsible corporate citizenship and uses its unique position to help bridge the funding gaps experienced by many non-profit bodies.
The ABLE Network performs a valuable function by promoting independence and healthy living for its participants, which ultimately benefits the wider community. Participants learn workplace skills, enjoy recreation opportunities and receive literacy support and transit system training – all in keeping with the organization’s stated goal of providing access to better living and employment (ABLE).
