Thank you to Storage Mart, 11001 Excelsior Blvd, Hopkins, MN (952)935-2194 ext 2 for sponsoring our storage unit.  Without having this storage unit to keep our donations, products and many other items that help us to achieve our goals and mission we would not be as organized as we are.   With the weekly hospitals visits, vendor fairs, family visits and much more volunteers and board members can access the unit on their time schedule.  We have had our unit with Storage Mart for 5 years and they recently started a program to help non-profits.  We are thankful to Storage Mart and highly recommend them to any of you that are in need of a storage unit.
