At Hollywood Storage Center of Thousand Oaks we really love helping guests every day with their storage needs. Lending a hand and providing solutions is one of the reasons we’re the storage unit experts so many people in Newbury Park, Camarillo, Westlake Village and our neighboring cities choose to work with.
When our workday ends, we enjoy continuing to support our neighbors and our community. That’s why we recently kicked off a new program called the “Hollywood Storage Volunteer Corps” which allows our team to use paid time off to volunteer for non-profit organizations. Our community-minded team has already jumped at the chance to use their volunteer hours. Here are some of the highlights:
- Puppy Love – Assistant General Manager Jeremy Evans spent a day volunteering with Paw Works, a cat and dog rescue agency with a location in Thousand Oaks. Paw Works volunteers help in the organization’s pet adoption stores, as well as at weekend pet adoptions and other events in our community. Jeremy spent a bit of his volunteer time helping tidy their store, but most was spent giving love to the animals and helping them build their trust in people.
- Sisterly Support – General Manager Sandy Kish supported Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County as a volunteer at their premier annual fundraiser in Westlake Village. She helped them raise record funds that will support their mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships.
- Shore Thing – Maintenance Manager Page Sturgill is an outdoorsy type of guy, which is why his volunteer hours were spent taking care of Mother Nature’s gifts. As a volunteer for the Surfrider Foundation, he spent part of a day cleaning up Ventura Beach, then headed over to Olivas Adobe Historical Park and worked in their gardens.
- Boys and Their Toys – Storage Consultants Bobby Brink and Richard Bejar combined their “need for speed” with their desire to give to less fortunate families. These two volunteered at the 16th annual Motor 4 Toys. Guests were admitted to the exotic car show by giving a new, unwrapped toy, and all items and funds collected were donated to those in need.
Plans are already underway to lend a helping hand in our community in 2020 and we’re so thankful for the opportunities that exist to make a difference. We look forward to seeing you out in the community and working with you when you’re in looking for a storage unit, a Penske truck rental, or friendly postal services.
