SpareFootAustin-based SpareFoot, the self-storage marketplace, will donate a month of storage space to people in Oklahoma affected by the devastating tornadoes in the Oklahoma City area.
A massive tornado tore through Moore, Okla., just to the South of Oklahoma City, on Tuesday. It wreaked havoc leveling entire neighborhoods, businesses and schools and left two dozen dead including nine children, according to official news reports.
SpareFoot will cover the cost, up to $100, of the storage unit to those tornado victims who rent a storage unit within a 50-mile radius of Oklahoma City. The offer is good to customers who move in by June 21.
“The images of the destruction in the Oklahoma City area are heartbreaking. Our thoughts go out to the communities in this region that felt Mother Nature’s wrath,” SpareFoot CEO Chuck Gordon said in a news statement. “While human lives obviously are the most important consideration in a situation like this, we at SpareFoot hope our offer of free storage space can help people in the Oklahoma City area recover from these powerful tornadoes.”
SpareFoot offers a free marketplace that lets customers find and reserve storage units online. It has the largest inventory of storage units in the U.S.
