San Diego Self Storage, Rubio’s join for toy drive, offer prizes for high-schoolers to join in


San Diego Self Storage and Rubio’s Restaurants are joining forces for the 16th annual SDSS Toys for Tots holiday toy drive by collecting toys at SDSS facilities throughout San Diego.

They’re also offering coupons for a free Rubio’s taco for the first 50 donors who drop off a toy at each location.

This year, all San Diego high school students are invited to participate in the drive to earn community service hours. The student who collects the most new, unwrapped toys and delivers them to a SDSS facility by Dec. 15 will be eligible to win a WiFi iPad Mini (value of $299) as well as a $50 gift card from Rubio’s. San Diego Self Storage facilities include Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Encinitas, Escondido, Golden Triangle, La Jolla, Olivenhain, Poway, Solana Beach, Sorrento Mesa and Sorrento Valley.

The drawing for free rental space will be held at each SDSS location on Dec. 20, along with the presentation of the iPad mini and Rubio’s gift certificate to the winning high school student.
