Special Wings Tees Off With Stor-Age

Stor-Age recently attended the Special Wings Golf Day at Eagle Canyon Golf Estate in Johannesburg. Stor-Age are one of the key sponsors of the Special Wings Foundation and were delighted to be able to make a contribution to the event once again. This year, every player received a branded water bottle, a voucher for one months' complimentary storage and a tip from our team on the tee box. A great day was had by all and the event was a wonderful success.
"The Special Wings Foundation was started at the end of 2012 with the express purpose of raising funds for the education and therapy of children with special needs, whose parents are unable to afford the education that they deserve.

Despite being very new and without any grants, the dedicated team members have managed to raise over R200 000. This has been used to keep a number of children in a private special needs school. A school where the children have access to specialised therapists. Some of these children cannot walk, some cannot talk and some just sit in their chairs but with the assistance of the school they are happier than ever before and parents can communicate with them using sign language specifically engineered for each child and family.

The goal for Special Wings is to one day increase the number of schools offering this support and hopefully establish their own school with affordable care for these families. There are very few grants available to these families, and the grants there are, wouldn’t cover a single months' school fees, let alone the medical expenses faced by these families for therapy’s, operations or specialised equipment needed to do basic activities that we take for granted."

Did you know that Stor-Age are involved in a number of other charities, including the Santa Shoebox Project. With the success of the project last year and we have decided to give away shoeboxes again this year. Stay tuned to the Stor-Age Facebook page for more information and dates for when you can collect your free shoebox at any Stor-Age store nationwide.
