Amplifying Impact 

WillScot Mobile Mini is an international company with intense local focus. Across the US, Canada, and Mexico, our approximately 240 branches are deeply connected to their surrounding community. Operations become part of the social fabric. We help schools function, empower governments to better serve citizens, enable commerce, drive economic growth, facilitate construction, create new jobs, raise wages, train workforces, uplift societies, and so much more. We continue expanding our giving and outreach across the communities in which we operate.

Our Core Four Causes 

We organize our community activities around four core causes that most align with our business purpose: Shelter, Hunger, Education, and Health & Wellness. These Core Four Causes align with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1-4 and demonstrate our company commitment to making an impact for people and the planet, now and into the future. We have numerous partnerships at local and national levels to guide our activities. In 2024, our major partners are Habitat for Humanity International, St. Mary’s Food Bank, Feeding America, Food Banks Canada, Bancos de Alimentos de México, Junior Achievement, and the American Red Cross.

Driven by Our People

At WillScot Mobile Mini, our commitment to communities is enormous, but it starts small—at the individual level. While some of our community activities are corporate-driven, others are inspired and led by employees. We believe this drives deeper engagement. Our employees select their favorite charities; donate their time, talent, and treasure; and organize teams to help their local communities in ways that are meaningful to them.

Give Where You Live

We launched “Give Where You Live” in 2021. This program allows employees across our approximately 240 branch locations to partner with local charities of their choice in meaningful ways. We encourage our employees to give their time, talent, and treasure to local organizations, furthering our Core Four causes through a volunteer rewards program. Since our launch, we have had more than 800 donors support more than 500 causes with more than $470,000. To date, we’ve tracked approximately 6,000 volunteer hours by more than 900 volunteers through the platform.

Additionally, our Inclusiveness Resource Teams (IRTs) support our community-focused values by raising funds on the platform and providing volunteer opportunities that connect to the populations they represent. For example, our BOLD IRT recently raised nearly $5,000 for NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund as part of its MLK Day activities.

Minions of Kindness (MoK)

Our employees are committed to supporting one another. The Minions of Kindness Fund is an employee-led 501(c)(3) organization that uses employee donations to support our employees in times of distress. The fund offers our employees the opportunity to make a difference for those in need through payroll deductions and one-time contributions. Since its inception in 2012, the fund has provided more than $442,000 in monetary aid to more than 230 employees.

Community Engagement

In the Core Cause of Shelter, nearly 20 WillScot Mobile Mini employees from Memphis, TN volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis ReStore unpacking, sorting, and organizing items in the warehouse and retail storefront. The Memphis team also volunteered at Warriors Center for Women, a rescue mission and recovery program for women battling homelessness, addiction, and other life-controlling problems in Olive Branch, MS, to prepare and serve a taco buffet to the center’s residents.

In Mexico in 2023, Monterrey and Mexico City donated time and gifts to children at the Casa Hogar Refugio children’s shelter in Monterrey and to seniors at the C.A.S.A. Yekkan retirement home in Mexico City. The team also donated pet food and volunteered walking dogs at the Albergue San Cristóbal dog shelter in the State of Mexico.

Food donations and food bank volunteering are popular ways for our employees to support the Core Cause of Hunger. Here are just a few recent examples of these community service activities: 

Other examples of community service projects include Corpus Christi, TX, where 10 local branch employees spent a morning volunteering at the Gulf Coast Humane Society cleaning kennels and providing animal enrichment.

In Knoxville, TN, a group of seven employees volunteered their time at Compassion Closet, a local nonprofit that provides clothing and tangible goods to foster children and their families. The team helped sort and organize incoming donations as part of a spring clean-out.

And from a beach clean-up in Ft. Myers, FL; to roadside beautification in Grand Rapids, MI; to sprucing up a local park picnic area in Bakersfield, CA, employees across the company have held an array of volunteer events that make a difference in their communities outdoors as well. 

Featured Community Partnerships

At WillScot Mobile Mini, we are proud of the diverse partnerships we've formed at the national level and in the local communities in which we live and operate.

Habitat for Humanity

This 16+ year partnership in the Core Cause of Shelter combines in-kind donations and monetary support helping families build and improve places to call home. Branches can make an impact with local Habitat for Humanity affiliates by donating containers for up to seven months during a neighborhood build. To date, we have delivered nearly $8 million in value to Habitat for Humanity. 

WillScot Mobile Mini employees gave more than 1,000 hours of their time in 2023 hanging drywall, roofing, painting, and other construction duties for home builds in Baltimore, Toronto, Memphis, Phoenix, Orlando, and Philadelphia- along with building and decorating playhouses for children in San Diego. More home builds are scheduled for 2024 in several cities.

Feeding America, St. Mary’s Food Bank, Food Banks Canada, Bancos de Alimentos de México

WillScot Mobile Mini is supporting four organizations dedicated to the Core Cause of Hunger. In addition to corporate donations to these organizations, employees across the company have opportunities to hold food drives and volunteer their time at local food banks.

Junior Achievement

A partnership with Junior Achievement supports our Core Cause of Education. Junior Achievement provides work readiness, financial awareness, and entrepreneurship programs for students through chapters in all 50 US states + 100 countries. Our partnership includes sponsoring a BizTown shop in the Tempe, AZ, location for the 2023-24, 2024-25, and 2025-26 school years, as well as opportunities for employees to volunteer at a BizTown, in the classroom, and as a mentor.

American Red Cross

WillScot Mobile Mini established a community partnership with the American Red Cross to support our Core Cause of Health & Wellness. In addition to a corporate financial contribution, employees are encouraged to get involved with the Red Cross through blood drives, and other volunteering opportunities. Our corporate team in Phoenix, AZ, held blood drives in 2022 and 2023, in which more than 60 donors gave a combined 70 units of blood, producing enough blood to save more than 200 lives. In addition, employees in Phoenix wrote cards to military service members and veterans in 2023, expressing gratitude for their sacrifices and heroism. And teams in 8 cities and branches assembled 1,000 Red Cross comfort kits for homeless veterans for distribution through local veterans services organizations in 2023.
