Phillips Companies Employees Raise Money For One Bistro

We were able to make a donation of $696.60 to our friends at One Bistro Xenia this month thanks to our employees! This past Winter, Phillips employees donated some of their “garage sale type items” to one of our storage units. After the unit was full, we put it up for auction and decided to give the proceeds to a local charity we loved. Phillips Companies matched the proceeds and we were able to donate even more than we had originally thought! We are now continuing this program every month with a different 501(C)(3) group in the area! We will allow each group control of one of our storage units to donate items as they wish, then auction off the unit and give the proceeds to that group to do with what they please! If you are a part of a local 501(C)(3) organization and would like more information on this program, please email us at
