We’re passionate about helping our community.
At Bluebird Self Storage, we believe our mission goes beyond providing self storage solutions. Our storage facilities are proud to work with incredible local organizations within our communities. Storage units go beyond storing possessions – they help facilitate new beginnings.
Learn about our Community Partnerships
We’re a company that strongly believes in supporting the communities we operate in. Because community involvement is a core value of our business, we wanted to share more about our significant partnership with Shelter Movers.
Shelter Movers is a non-profit organization providing survivor-centered, no-cost moving and storage services to women and children fleeing violence or abuse. Shelter Movers make moving and storage arrangements for their clients, so they can live in a safer environment and begin a new chapter in their life.
Through our partnership, clients of Shelter Movers can store their possessions at Bluebird facilities. Our team will provide storage units to Shelter Movers across Canada so survivors can house their belongings at absolutely no cost. Rather than worry about their belongings, their clients can instead focus on what matters – transitioning into a new life. You can learn more about our partnership here and see why we’re impassioned about making a difference in our local communities.
Our goal is to give survivors peace of mind about their belongings, so they can focus on transitioning into a new chapter of their lives. This partnership goes beyond business. Together, we’re making real change that helps individuals get the fresh start they need.

Sheen for She Foundation
Bluebird is partnered with Sheen for She, an organization dedicated to serving at-risk and underprivileged women dealing with physical and mental health issues. Sheen for She seeks to provide women the resources they need to promote self-care, which they define as the practice of building a woman’s image with grooming and personal hygiene. They want to help women develop their self-esteem, confidence, and professionalism through self-care in the form of Perseverance Aid Kits – and that’s where Bluebird Self Storage assists.
As part of our partnership, Bluebird has donated storage units in Toronto to Sheen for She, so they have a location to assemble their Perseverance Aid Kits. We hope to help Sheen for She continue their mission and aid women throughout the greater Toronto area. If you’re interested in helping Sheen for She, please donate to their GoFundMe, or learn how to volunteer.

In addition to helping with registration costs, our partnership helps fund team jerseys and equipment so players have everything they need during the season. We’re passionate about our Orangeville community and hope our partnership helps this team succeed in the season ahead.
Etobicoke Eagles Football
At our Appleby facility, we’ve partnered with the Etobicoke Eagles Football team. This partnership provides the team with a discounted storage unit, which helps the Eagles store their equipment throughout the football season. We want the team to focus on what really matters – the love of the game.
Our Toronto facility is proudly partnered with Downsizing Diva, an incredible franchise located throughout the greater Toronto area. Downsizing Diva’s mission is to help people entering retirement move and reorganize their life by simplifying the downsizing process! Their goal is to give older adults control over how they move and make this transition seamless from start to finish.
Our partnership helps Downsizing Diva store their clients’ possessions and make moving easier. In most cases, their clients aren’t sure what they want to keep or donate while downsizing. We’ve donated two free storage units for an entire year – supporting Downsizing Divas and their clients! The first unit is to help their clients sort through their belongings, so they can decide what to keep.
The second storage unit is full of possessions their clients are ready to part with but cannot be donated at this time due to an influx of COVID-19 donations. Instead of letting these items stay in storage, we will auction off this unit as it fills. After every auction, Downsizing Divas and Bluebird will donate the proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Society of Toronto. Bluebird is proud to work with such an incredible organization and looks forward to helping older adults in the GTA!
The Adulam Foundation is an incredible non-profit whose mission is to foster transformative change through wellness, impacting the lives of individuals, families, and communities. Their staff offers workshops designed to promote wellness and build valuable life skills for children, youth, adults, and families. Making mental health and intervention services more accessible can help foster more positive change for individuals.
In addition to their workshops, they offer individual counseling, life skills coaching, and eco programming! Individuals can develop coping tools within physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual pillars.
Through this partnership, Bluebird Self Storage provides the Adualm Foundation with a free 5 x 10 storage unit and reduced monthly rent on a 10 x 10 storage unit. We’re happy to assist the Adulam Foundation as they continue to make mental health and wellness services more accessible for others.

Bluebird is proudly partnered with Big Hill Haven, providing them with a free 10 x 20 storage unit. We’re incredibly passionate about helping our local communities, and we’re proud to help Big Hill Haven continue their mission.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Sleep in Heavenly Peace was founded on the principle that all children deserve a place to rest their heads at night. This non-profit organization builds, assembles, and delivers bunk beds for children in need. Their efforts began through one simple thought. While plenty of organizations provide clothing, meals, and other resources for children, many still lack suitable beds and bedding. Sleep in Heavenly Peace was created from this initial thought, giving children a safe and comfortable place to sleep.
Our Sherwood Park facility’s partnership with Sleep in Heavenly Peace provides them with discounted storage units to store beds, and in unsuitable weather, finish construction in larger storage units!
Alzheimer Society of Toronto
Bluebird Self Storage is proud to partner with the Alzheimer Society of Toronto. This organization offers free support, information, programs, and education to people living with dementia, their families and caregivers, and the public.
Alzheimer Society of Toronto seeks to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias while promoting research and advocating for essential services that respect the individual's dignity.
In support of this important organization, Bluebird Self Storage has gifted a storage unit at our Esandar location in Toronto. Additionally, Bluebird will provide free storage across the country to assist the Alzheimer Society of Toronto in achieving its mission.
