The holidays are a time of giving. Storage World is helping members of our community whose home was devastated by fire a few weeks ago. Corey and Latoya McCorkle and their 3 daughters, from Acworth, lost everything in a fire during the week of Thanksgiving. The fire started in the fireplace or the chimney and spread quickly throughout the home. The family all escaped unharmed, but Latoya was sent to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The family lost everything in the fire including clothing, identification, photos, cell phones and appliances.
The First United Methodist Church of Acworth is collecting tax-deductible donations to help the family recover from the devastating loss. Storage World is also taking donations for the family at our three locations: Decatur/South DeKalb, Jonesboro/South Atlanta, and Stockbridge/McDonough. Our Decatur location at 3122 Panthersville Rd will be taking donations for the family in lieu of donations for aid for the Philippines this holiday season. The manager of the facility, Shenikqa, is friends of the McCorkle family.
All cash donations made at our facilities will be matched by Storage World up to $1000.00. Thank you for your help to this family in need.
