Special Needs Theatre Group Needs HELP!!!

We are  Acting Up Drama Group. We are a special needs drama class for adults. We perform a play at least once a year. We love to perform on stage and have been doing this for over 10 years. The productions we do are so meaningful to us and others. It allows our audiences to see how we shine onstage. Covid 19 ruined our production in 2020 and now in 2021 will be ruined too. Who knows when we can start practicing again? Unfortunately, even during this pandemic we have to pay rent of $160.00 a month to Public Storage. I would hate to get rid of all of our costumes and props simply because we have no where to store them. It truly has been difficult not seeing our friends.  Our group is managed by volunteer parents, family members, and friends who love to see us thriving. Our group has grown over the years and our costumes and props have grown along with us. The storage area we have is 10x10 and we take up almost all that space. Asking for donations is very difficult since we haven't been able to have drama in well over a year. We have no source of income since we are a nonprofit and cannot charge for our performances. Until we have someone or somewhere willing to donate space, we have no other choice. If anyone is willing to donate a garage or extra room, a storage area, we could split the costumes and props up and store in several places. Accepting any ideas because I am out if them. Please help!!
