Extra Space Storage Inc. Announces Partnership With Boys & Girls Club of Simi Valley, California

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Extra Space Storage and Boys & Girls Club of Simi Valley have launched a partnership that will allow Boys & Girls Club free use of a storage space to store an array of donated items for its Annual Auction. The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Simi Valley is to provide a positive, safe, healthy and fun environment that empowers youth to become responsible individuals and citizens of tomorrow.

Boys & Girls Club of America had its beginnings in 1860 with several women in Hartford, Connecticut. These women believed that boys roaming the streets should have a positive alternative. The Boys & Girls Club of America believes that character development, the basic building block in personal development, should be an integral aspect of every Club program and activity. For over 36 years Boys & Girls Club of Simi Valley has served over 10,000 children per year between the ages of 6 and 18.

"This organization provides a vital service to our youth in the local community and we are committed to help them in any way possible. We are very excited about this partnership," stated Mark Stanke, Divisional Vice President for Extra Space Storage.

Mrs. Linda White, Chief Executive Officer of Boys & Girls Club of Simi Valley, states, "Having Extra Space Storage for the past 10 years has allowed us to keep our donations and decorations in a safe environment. Before Extra Space Storage, we would use program space that forced us to move stuff around and often time dispose of items we couldn't keep due to lack of space. I know the other storage in this area costs $400-$500 and we appreciate Extra Space Storage helping us out."

Extra Space Storage of Simi Valley is located at 2650 Stearns St. and has units for both residential and commercial storage needs. The property boasts a professional staff, state-of-the-art security, and 24-hour video surveillance. The building's units, which are available in varying sizes from 25 to 300 square feet, are available for short term or long term leasing, and are accessible seven days a week, 365 days a year.
