PODS® is proud to support our local community! Since we opened our doors in 2005, the local PODS franchise serving Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties has donated hundreds of PODS® containers to nonprofit and charitable organizations. Helping our friends and neighbors and getting to know our community members is key to our mission. We have had the wonderful opportunity to work with amazing organizations including:RELAY FOR LIFE
Relay for Life, a fundraising event of the American Cancer Society to not only raise money for cancer research and cancer patients but to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, and remember those who lost their lives to cancer. PODS looks forward to donating containers to help with volunteer stations during this important fundraising event.
