The community values our moving and storage services, and Select Van & Storage values community service. We feel that it is important to give back to the community we serve. Through our involvement in the community, we have developed lasting friendships and have helped improve the lives of our neighbors. There is no better feeling than a smile, thank you and the appreciation you feel from volunteering and supporting the community in which you live.
Here are some of the ways the main headquarters of Select Van & Storage in Omaha is helping their community:
- Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Select Van & Storage of Omaha proudly turned their Mayflower green to pink as they participated as an active sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, one of the largest fundraisers for breast cancer nationwide. Starting with a pledge to donate 50% of rental fees from Select Van's new Pink Totes plastic storage containers, Select Van's involvement in the race grew significantly as they saw an even greater need for help. In addition to their financial donation, the team from Select Van opened their warehouse as the pick-up point for participant's race packets, t-shirts and timing chips.
- Omaha Food Bank
Select Van & Storage of Omaha became known as the Omaha mover that cares. They partnered with the Omaha Food Bank and local radio station Z-92 for 92 Hours of Caring. Together they gathered over 10,000 pounds in donated canned goods over a 92 hour period during the holiday season.
- Stephen Center
For the second straight year Select Van partnered with the Stephen Center to offer Thanksgiving on the Mayflower. Guests of the shelter were able to sit back and relax in the comforts of a Mayflower moving van and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with all the sides and desserts courtesy of Select Van. Select Van provided a couch and flat screen TV so everyone could enjoy the parade, as well as the traditional football games.
- Toys for Tots
Since the early 1990s Select Van & Storage has partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Select Van has donated the use of their moving boxes, as well as portable storage units or SAM units for the toy collection efforts.
