1-800-PACK-RAT Donates Portable Storage Containers for YMCA Empty Stocking Fund Collection

Need for Assistance Greater than Ever in Two North Carolina Counties

WAKE FOREST, N.C., Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 1-800-PACK-RAT, LLC, a leader in the portable storage and moving industry, has partnered with the Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA, located in Concord, NC, for its annual Empty Stocking Fund toy drive, now in its 86th year. 1-800-PACK-RAT has donated two portable storage containers to provide secure and weatherproof on-site storage to house the donations until they are distributed December 17-19, 2022.

The Rowan-Cabarrus YMCA Empty Stocking Fund collects toys, gifts, and money to make Christmas special for children in need and teens under sixteen years of age in the two counties it serves. It is anticipated that the donations will have a greater impact this year given that so many families are continuing to experience job loss and hardships due to Covid.

“The YMCA has a long tradition of serving their local communities,” said James Burati, Chief Sales Officer at 1-800-PACK-RAT. “That’s why it’s a privilege to partner with the RowanCabarrus chapter and help bring joy to children this Christmas.”
