SDSSSan Diego Self Storage (SDSS) and Rubio’s ® Restaurants are joining forces for the 16th Annual SDSS Toys for Tots holiday toy drive beginning November 1, 2014, by collecting toys at 17 SDSS facilities throughout San Diego and Temecula and offering coupons for a free Rubio’s taco for the first 50 donors who drop off a toy at each location.

Terry Aston, “We’re very excited about the SDSS Toys for Tots initiative this year by engaging high school students in coordination with Rubio’s as a valued campaign partner. We’ve had some very positive feedback from the community by raising our collection goal to include students in our collection efforts; not only are we educating future leaders on the importance of giving back, but we’re also elevating the impact on the families supported by this endeavor; last year we collected over 16,000 toys and we hope to surpass that amount by a sizable gain with the help of Rubio’s and local area high school students; engaging students in our campaign aligns well with the mission of the Toys for Tots effort.” The US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program delivers new toys during the holidays, with the purpose of sending a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders ( The Toys for Tots campaign has been running for approximately 65 consecutive years and the hotline telephone number is (858) 967-1269.   During the toy drive, all SDSS facilities will also be conducting a drawing for a $100 credit toward a tenant’s storage rental (new or existing tenant) and Rubio’s has donated a family four-pack of complimentary meal cards; to enter the drawing, individuals may simply register when dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at any SDSS location. The collection drive starts at 8:00 a.m. on November 1st and ends at 6:00 p.m. on December 19th. The drawing for free rental space will be held at each SDSS location on December 20th, along with the presentation of the iPad mini and Rubio’s gift certificate to the winning high school student.
