U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage to Fire Victims in North and South Carolina

HHG Note: We realize this is NOT something happening in Georgia. However, first, we thought it was just a great thing for U-Haul to help and then secondly, we figured you might have relatives in the area who didn't have access to the Internet or who might not hear about this. So, here it is:

The U-Haul Companies of South Carolina and Raleigh have joined together to offer 30 days of free storage to North and South Carolina families who have been evacuated or need to move their belongings away from the growing fire. Families needing more information about the 30-day free self-storage assistance program should contact the following storage facilities.
