A-1 Self Storage, a provider of self-storage services throughout California, will support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots annual holiday toy drive. All 40 A-1 facilities have become official drop-off locations for donations of new and unused toys to be distributed this Christmas to underprivileged children.
“We understand that the recession and high employment threatens to deprive many children of getting a gift this Christmas,” said Brian Caster, president and CEO of A-1 parent company Caster Cos. “We feel it is important to bring hope and the joy of Christmas to needy children. Last year’s event was a huge success, and we hope to be able to collect even more toys for deserving children this year.”
The Toys for Tots program was founded in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks. Its mission is to collect new and unwrapped toys during the holiday season and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which each campaign is conducted.
A-1 Self Storage has 17 locations in the greater San Diego County area and more than 40 locations across California. It is the self-storage division of the Caster Cos., a third-generation, family-owned company headquartered in Southern California since 1959.
