California self-storage operator A-1 Self Storage is donating money to two separate organizations: Ignation Volunteer Corps (IVC) San Diego Region and Plant with Purpose – Oaxaca, Mexico Program.
IVC has chapters in several major U.S. cities, including Detroit, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. The organization matches the talents of volunteers with community non-profit organizations. Ignatian Volunteers are men and women, aged 50 and over. They commit to serve two days a week for 10 months a year, and can renew their commitment at the end of the year.
Plant With Purpose’s integrated Oaxacan program uses a variety of environmentally sustainable, income-generating activities to train farmers to work with the land.
A-1 Self Storage has 16 locations in the San Diego County area and more than 40 locations statewide. It is the self-storage division of the Caster Cos., a third-generation, family-owned company headquartered in South California since 1959. Caster Cos. develops and manages A-1 Self Storage, A-1 Car Storage and other commercial properties in California. Its portfolio includes more than 4 million square feet of real estate.
