Local PODS Owner Donates $100,000 in Services to Help Local Nonprofits

Source: Erin Brown for PODS

Steve Yapp, franchise owner of PODS moving and storage who serves the Tri-Counties, has made supporting the community a key part of his company. Saving local nonprofits more than $100,000 in logistics this past year, PODS continues to be involved with more than 50 community charities.

Passionate about the community, Yapp utilizes the mobility and storing abilities of PODS containers to relieve charities the stress of logistics by using his own trucks, fuel and employees.

“We are more in awe of the Tri-Counties' true heroes that provide an incredible network of supporters who work tirelessly for the area’s individuals and families that are most in need,” Yapp said.

Organizations that PODS currently supports include the Santa Barbara Boys and Girls Club, Casa Pacifica, Santa Maria Rodeo and the California Strawberry Festival.

“The bottom line is PODS does it because it is our small opportunity to do the right thing, the thing that every thriving business should do and that is gives back to the community that supports us,” Yapp said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
