The company operates 24 self-storage facilities in Colorado and Pennsylvania

October 9, 2019: Guardian Storage established in Pittsburgh in the year of 1987, is executing a company-wide donation drive through November.30 to support local shelters. The operator is partnering with national nonprofits “One Warm Coat” and “Knock Knock” Give a Sock to collect and distribute clean, gently worn coats and new socks of all sizes, which will be accepted at any Guardian location. 

www.insideselfstorage.com reports: 
We are excited about our upcoming coat and sock drive to help kickoff our Guardian Gives program and hope the community will support us. There are currently 39 million Americans living in poverty and struggling to pay their bills and support their families, many unable to provide basic essentials like a warm coat and socks. With the help of our partners and local communities, our goal is to provide 2,500 pairs of new socks and 2,500 gently worn coats by the end of the program.” Said by Steven Cohen, Guardian’s founder and president.

One Warm Coat distributed more than 500,000 coats across North America last year to children, women and men, “It’s because of our incredible volunteers that so many people receive the gift of warmth each year. The health effects of extreme cold are life-threatening. Thanks to Guardian Storage’s efforts, many people in their surrounding communities will be safe and protected this winter.” Said by Beth W. Amodio, One Warm Coat’s CEO and president.

Guardian Storage established in Pittsburgh in 1987, operates 18 locations in the greater Pittsburgh area, with a new property under construction in North Strabane, Pa., and six locations in Colorado.
