California self-storage provider A-1 Self Storage is supporting several charities with monetary contributions.
The company gave a donation to Indian Hills Camp, which provides outdoor experiences for groups, families and youth. The organization hosts more than 18,000 children annually at its camp grounds, which offers activities such as nature hikes, zip lines and archery.
A-1 also made a contribution to Ignation Volunteer Corps (IVC) San Diego Region, which provides individuals, aged 50-plus, opportunities to serve others by addressing social injustices and transforming lives. IVC matches volunteers with organizations in need of their talents.
Saint Vincent de Paul Villages is also a beneficiary of A-1 Self Storage’s charitable donations. The organization helps provide shelter and food to the homeless in San Diego. In recent years, more than 14,000 San Diegan’s living in poverty were served with one or more services from Saint Vincent de Villages.
A-1 also made a monetary donation to CASA Riverside County. The charity’s mission is to advocate on behalf of abused, neglected and abandoned children in the courts of Riverside County. CASA supports volunteers to act on behalf of the children and ensures they have a safe, permanent and nurturing home.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) also received a donation from A-1 Self Storage following JDRF’s “Father of the Year” event on June 7 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. A-1 Self Storage CEO Brian Caster was honored at the event with the Father of the Year award from the National Father’s Day Committee.
