Storage Solution Supports Families in Crisis

Families in crisis can continue to be supported thanks to the donation of storage containers to local charity Glasgow Caring City.

Mobile Mini, a leading hirer of portable site accommodation and secure storage containers, has gifted two 20ft storage containers to the aid agency, from its branch in Glasgow.

Glasgow Caring City based in Govan, support families in crisis in Scotland and across the world, through practical donations of items such as food, clothing and toys, through to white goods and household starter packs. Practical resources which people need for everyday living are often the most effective and efficient means by which to support families who need urgent assistance. Since 1999, Glasgow Caring City has been supporting people both here in Scotland and overseas in this simple and unique way.

Ross Galbraith, from the charity contacted Mobile Mini when he was considering the use of containers as a solution for securely storing donations.

On hearing more about the charity and the work they do, Branch Manager Alan Tolmie was more than happy to offer two containers, free of charge for up to six months.

On speaking about the donation Ross said, “Ensuring that the items given by the public to our appeals is handled safely and sensitively is critical to ensuring people continue to support our charity and of course, ensure we have adequate resources to meet the ever increasing numbers of families in need.
