Newark, NJ (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
In keeping with their annual tradition of holiday giving and volunteerism, Edison Properties, the parent company of Manhattan Mini Storage, is reaching out to several lifesaving organizations this season to make the holidays brighter for those who are suffering and in need.
First, instead of spending money on holiday decorations for the two-story lobby of the Hippodrome, Edison’s Class A office building in Midtown, the company made a $20,000 donation to the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). WWP serves the needs of those who incurred a physical or mental injury, illnesses or wound while serving in the U.S. Military on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as family members and caregivers of Wounded Warriors.
“It’s a very small sacrifice for us to forego tinsel and lights in our lobby,” said Stacy Stuart, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Human Resources for Edison Properties. “Real sacrifice is what these brave men and women and their families demonstrate every day. We see it as a privilege to be able to give something back to them.”
As in past years, Manhattan Mini Storage also partnered with LivePerson, the online marketing and web analytics company, and the charity volunteer program FeedingNYC to supply more than 3,000 Manhattan Mini Storage boxes, which were used to pack up complete Thanksgiving dinners that were donated by people across the city. Those dinners were hand-delivered last week to the doors of families in need across all five New York City boroughs. Manhattan Mini Storage is offering all FeedingNYC donors a 15 percent discount on storage room rentals.
Manhattan Mini Storage is also once again donating extra-large boxes for the Partnership for the Homeless’s annual Toy Drive, which collects toys for deserving children across the city. The public is asked to drop off unopened, unwrapped gifts at any donation center, including the Partnership’s offices at 305 7th Avenue, 13th Floor.
The Partnership for the Homeless toy drive runs through Dec. 6, and toys will be distributed by volunteers at an all-day holiday party for children on that day. For more information and to make a donation or volunteer, people can visit http://www.partnershipforthehomeless.org.
