Mobile Storage Donates container for Syrian Refugee Family

Mobile Storage Rentals is so happy to donate a storage container to the St Marks Church in Kitchener. The St Marks Syrian refugee committee needed a storage container while gathering furniture and clothing for a Syrian family that they are sponsoring. The Syrian family arriving in Kitchener had nothing but there clothes on there back.
St Marks organized a fundraising and donation effort. They raised enough money to rent an apartment for a year, and completely furnished the apartment. 
What a great country we live in! We are all on this earth together, and should share our good fortune.
