Treats For Troops


Did you think that our trucks were only used to move goods to your storage unit? Think again! 5 Star Storage is delighted to be able to sponsor Dr. Chang’s Candy Buy Back through the use of our trucks to help troops overseas.

The buy back consists of local kids in the San Diego community donating some of their Halloween candy to send to troops overseas.  Children are given $1 per pound of candy donated.  Last year over 7,000lbs of candy was donated, and this year Dr. Chang expects it to be about 10,000lbs!  Children also are to write a note or card to give with their candy either beforehand or when they drop off their candy.

The event is happening on Thursday, November 10th from 3pm-7pm at Dr. Chang’s office 12835 Pointe Del Mar Way, Suite #3 in Del Mar.  Children must be there, and if they go they get a free toothbrush kit. Want to donate earlier? Stop by the office during business hours on their website. Contact: (858) 481-9090 or for more info.

5 Star Storage is proud to be able to help causes like this; we look forward to hearing if the goal of 10,000lbs is reached!
