San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) is matching all financial donations from the 2012 “Bottles for Babies” collection campaign to benefit deserving military families. The campaign collected baby bottles and $5 to $20 donations to purchase baby bottles at 18 SDSS facilities through the non-profit organization MOM4USA. MOM4USA is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization that provides baby care packages to first-time active-duty parents, wounded warrior veterans and active-duty reservists. MOM4USA also offers assistance to military families through their mobile food pantry and facilitates the collection and distribution of used furniture and household appliances.
According to Steven Teixeira, SDSS director of property management, “Our storage tenants were very generous in supporting this collection drive, along with enthusiastic participation from the general public. We received $600 in cash donations and SDSS is matching that amount for a total donation of $1,200 to MOM4USA. Our contribution will help support the 50,000 active-duty military and their families who are served by this non-profit organization each year; we admire the work MOM4USA engages in to provide much-needed essential items to military families and we’re grateful for the opportunity they have given us to participate in their program.”
Active military families or wounded warrior veterans residing in the continental U.S. who are expecting their first baby can register to receive a baby care package that contains infant items at the MOM4USA website, and a package will be shipped via U.S. mail. www.MOM4USA.org.
