At Right Fit Storage, we give back to the community that gives to us. We are so thankful for all of our customers, and we try to show this in everything we do. Every month our team at 3447 North Roxboro Street in Durham, North Carolina, completes a project that helps the local community. We hope that these philanthropic events show the community we care. Here are some of our favorites so far!
Supporting Urban Ministries of Durham
The Urban Ministries of Durham provides many services to the community with the intent to rebuild lives. They provide clothing, shelter, and food throughout their many programs. We provided encouraging bags, as they call it, to assist in their takeaway meals.
Sponsoring Pets Together
Pets Together is an online service the connects animals with humans combatting loneliness. Loneliness can be incredibly harmful to our health, and giving these people a chance to connect with others can really improve their outlook on life. By sponsoring their efforts, they will be able to connect to the necessary people.
Donating to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle
Did you know that North Carolina is the tenth hungriest state in the nation? The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle services 7 counties and 222,000 people. Nearly 6 million pounds of food are distributed to the community. They also teach individuals how to be self-sufficient with gardening, shopping, and cooking lessons for those on a budget. They are always collecting food to help their efforts, and we are proud to support them.
Teachers have to pay for their own school supplies. That means that your teacher supplied and paid for every calculator, whiteboard, and other supplies you can think of that you have used in a classroom. These supplies are necessary for students to succeed, but it shouldn’t be solely on teachers to foot this bill. Crayons2Calculators holds an annual drive to collect these materials and distribute them to the surrounding schools. We were proud to contribute to their Fill the Bus campaign this summer!
