We Were ‘Able’ To Raise Over $10,000.

In September we set ourselves a goal for October/November: to raise over $10,000 for our favourite charity, The Able Network by donating $10 for every storage unit move-in. The Able Network is a community-based program that provides work and recreation opportunities for young adults with intellectual disabilities.

Last Sunday, November 22nd the Allan family, the owners of Apple Storage, gathered with staff to present a cheque for $10,510 to Doug Sooley of The Able Network.
