November 2011. Pogoda Companies and National Storage Centers have enjoyed giving back to the community this fall season, helping to raise over $100,000 dollars in two charity events. They are also teaming up with Toys for Tots this holiday season and adding toy drop off boxes at their self storage facilities and manufactured housing communities.
Pogoda Companies did its part to help The American Diabetes Association raise awareness and Stomp Out Diabetes during the 5th Annual Wine Tasting Benefit hosted at The Reserve at Big Rock Restaurant, near downtown Birmingham, Michigan on November 3rd.
The event featured an evening of delectable foods, wines from around the world and an auction of gifts and prizes. Besides being one of the major sponsors, Pogoda Companies and National Storage Centers donated a 10ft x 20ft self storage unit for the silent auction. Maurice Pogoda and his wife, Lori, also donated their time and efforts to help bring about this event by sitting on the Stomp Out Planning Committee.
In Ann Arbor, Michigan, National Storage Centers helped raise awareness for yet another great cause. The 2011 Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis Walk at Gallup Park took place on October 22nd. The event featured music, and a kid’s corral complete with crafts, face painting and prizes. There was also a Midway area, where sponsors set up informational booths. National Storage Center of Ann Arbor on Jackson Road manned one of the booths and gave out free waters and candies to all attendees at the event.
Pogoda’s self storage facilities and manufactured housing communities will serve as a toy drop off this season, teaming up with the U.S. Marines and helping make children’s holiday season brighter. Select self storage locations will also be used by the Marines to store all area toys donated during the campaign.
