While the Iowa Troop Pantry works to fulfill its mission of sending care packages and letters to deployed service members from Iowa, there are several organizations and companies that keep us going. The company that has done the most for us, and has always been accommodating since Iowa Troop Pantry was founded has been Garage Mahaul in Iowa City.
Since October 2010, Garage Mahaul has been the home to our donated supplies while we organize boxing events and prepared packages for shipping. The self-storage company allows the Iowa Troop Pantry to use two large storage units free of charge in a temperature-controlled facility. We have had multiple boxing events on the property and they have always been quick to help us when an emergency arises.
Recently, we were notified of a large donation for a group of 150 Marines who are in dire need of supplies. We were concerned that our current storage units would not accommodate this large amount of items and still allow for workable space in which to pack the boxes. After one phone call to Garage Mahaul, they were willing to let us use yet another unit to hold items while we prepare to send them out next week.
We at the Iowa Troop Pantry offer a sincere and heart-felt thank you to Garage Mahaul (http://www.garagemahaul.com ) for your generous contribution and unending support of our men and women in the Armed Forces
