November 1st marked the start of FILL THE BOX Food and Toy Drive, presented by Storage West. This drive is to benefit the Salvation Army of Las Vegas. All of our Storage West locations in the Las Vegas valley are collecting food and toy donations. These will go to help families in need this holiday season. The drive will continue through the holiday season, ending on December 22nd, just in time for Christmas.
How Does it Work?
Our Storage West Managers will be supplying their community members and local businesses with our NEW Storage West auto-bottom boxes. We encourage recipients of these boxes to FILL THE BOX with canned or boxed food items. We will accept new or barely used toys as well. These NEW auto-bottom boxes do not need tape to put them together. Each box is able to hold a bunch of items and stack up cleanly and easily; great for holding food and toys.
We will be passing out boxes to people and businesses wanting to be a part of this effort. For every full box we get back, we will post a picture on social media. We'll also tag that person or business if they’d like. That way we can show the support they have given to this cause. Our goal is to get so many FILLED boxes back that we have to use one of our Storage West moving trucks to make the trips to deliver the donations!
Las Vegas is the definition of affluence with its massive casinos that house extravagant buffets, luxurious restaurants and fine dining, and high-end shopping stores. However, in our city there are still families in that are in need; families that need our help. The Storage West FILL THE BOX Food and Toy drive is an opportunity to give back to our local community, to provide food for those families that need it, to provide toys for kids of families that can’t afford, and to bring joy and happiness for the holidays.
The FILL THE BOX Food and TOY Drive will be accepting donations till December 22nd. Storage West will make TWO drop offs to the Salvation Army with the donations collected. The first will be on November 21st for Thanksgiving, and the other drop off will be December 22nd for Christmas.
What To Donate
Food items needed for the food drive include: canned meats, canned soups, boxed side dishes, canned fruits and vegetables, boxed pastas and sauces, boxed and dried soups and potatoes, rice, peanut butter, baby food and formula, packaged snacks, and any other boxed or canned non-perishable food items that are not outdated.
Toy items needed for the toy drive include: new or barely used toys, action figures, dolls, bicycles, electronics, sporting goods, colors and markers, board games, and miscellaneous items. Kid’s toy donations are needed for boys and girls, ages 1 to 18.

We just wanted to share a quick update about Phase One of the donation drive. We were able to collect 26 boxes of food for the Salvation Army for part one. These were dropped off just in time for Thanksgiving. Phase Two is now underway! Donations for Christmas will be accepted until December 22nd!
