Extra Space Storage is excited to continue partnering with the Ticket to Dream Foundation and announce a new QR code feature that will be added to our stores. Ticket to Dream is a 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2008, with a mission to give foster children around the country a chance to realize their dreams and just be kids.
Ticket to Dream partners with businesses and local communities to ensure foster youth of all ages have the school supplies, holiday gifts, and properly fitting clothing and shoes that all children need to thrive. But their work doesn’t stop there.
They also arrange and pay for opportunities like going to the zoo, joining a sports team, receiving music lessons, getting extra help in class, attending exciting events, and even reconnecting with a sibling at summer camp. They understand the importance of these activities in providing a happy and fulfilling upbringing by teaching valuable life skills and fostering social connections.
Additionally, they provide opportunities by sponsoring aging-out programs that help foster youth get ready for adulthood by increasing graduation rates, providing housing, access to computers, and teaching them life skills.
Extra Space Storage has been honored to help over the past year, by putting backpacks together at multiple company events so that foster kids are ready with all the necessary supplies at the start of the school year. Now, we’re excited to continue our partnership by getting our customers involved! Each of our stores will be equipped with QR decals that allow anyone who visits one of our more than 2,000 locations to donate on the spot.
Over 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system and range in age from days old to teenagers. Many of these children have never owned a new pair of shoes, clothes, or had the opportunity to participate in sports or music. We’re humbled and honored to be a small part of helping these kids to a better tomorrow through our continued partnership with the Ticket to Dream Foundation and now through the support of our customers nationwide.
