Maple Leaf Self Storage – “More Food. Less Hunger.” Food Drive


Maple Leaf Self Storage will be collecting non-perishable food items until Monday, January 11th at each of our 12 self storage locations.

This year our goal is to donate over 1000 lbs. of food to local food banks. Last year, 712 lbs. of food went to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, SHARE Family & Community Food Bank in Port Moody and the Calgary Food Bank.

Brown’s Moving and Storage has generously offered to pick up donations at our 10 B.C. locations. TSM Moving & Storage will be completing deliveries for our two Calgary locations. We greatly appreciate their generosity!
