(Calgary, AB)–(May,23, 2016) Local storage company aims to support charities throughout Calgary who are working to assist victims of recently Alberta fire–providing two 8 x 12 storage units free for 6 months.
With over 80,000 people recently displaced and many having lost their homes in the recent Alberta fire, many local business owners are stepping up to support those impacted. Budget Storage of Calgary, which is locally owned and operated has announced they will be offering up two 8 x 12 storage units for free for 6 months for any charity that is helping those impacted by the Fort McMurray fire. As of Tuesday, the fire has reached 354,000 hectares–more than 60 percent the size of Prince Edward Island and destroyed approximately 2,400 homes and buildings to date.
“It will take months before many will be able to rebuild or clean up their homes,” explains Budget Storage Owner, Ed Rooney. “With the added recession due to the drop in oil prices, many don’t have the funds or resources to store what’s left of their belongings, so we felt it was vital for our company to support our community in our own way.”
The Calgary self-storage company will be offering their heat-controlled units with interior access to any charity that is helping families and companies to free units till October 2016. The units feature multi-layered security systems, which include 24/7 digital surveillance and complimentary use of dollies, heavy-duty moving carts and pallet jacks to offload items.
Having a long history of supporting local charities, by offering discounts and donations to non-profit organizations on a regular basis, Rooney is hoping to help hundreds of families and individuals affected by the Alberta Fire. Charities are required to contact Budget Storage directly by phone at (403) 274-1413 to reserve the unit.
