A-1 Shelters Self Storage Donates Space for Haiti-Bound Supplies


A-1 Shelters Self Storage in Cape Coral, Fla., donated space to a local philanthropic couple collecting building supplies and sporting equipment for a children’s home in Haiti. The country was devastated by an earthquake in January, leaving hundreds of children without families to care for them.

Mary and Bob Plageman, who oversee a non-profit called The Sports Build Coalition Inc., are raising funds to pay for a 12-foot-by-20-foot shipping container to send to The New Life Children's Home in Port-au-Prince. They plan to fill the container with sporting equipment, building materials, tools and other survival items for the orphanage. The supplies will be used to build a playground for the orphanage.
