California self-storage provider A-1 Self Storage is providing monetary support to The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center of San Diego, a 12.4-acre center for family support, education, recreation and cultural arts. Made possible by a generous gift from the late philanthropist Joan Kroc, the facility is open to members and the general public. It serves residents of East San Diego, La Mesa and Lemon Grove, Calif., with a variety of programs for individuals of all ages.
The center provides activities such as tutoring, hockey and performance-arts theatre for the community.
