Access Self Storage, which operates six facilities in Texas, is partnering with “Focus Daily News” to provide scholarships to children and teenagers who are looking to foster their spiritual growth this summer. The Youth Activities Scholarship will fund summer adventures such as youth camps, choir tours, mission trips and other activities.
"We would like the opportunity to ensure future generations share in those experiences," said Doug Hunt, who co-owns Access Self Storage with his brother, David. “These kinds of trips are too important to overlook.”
To be eligible, applicants must complete a scholarship form and drop it off at any Access Self Storage location or mail it to the corporate office at 3404 N. I-35E, Lancaster, TX, 75134. Each form should be signed by the applicant and parent or guardian as well as a youth leader or minister.
The family-owned self-storage business is a Christian company with a long-time goal of community enrichment, according to the source. Access Self Storage contributes regularly to several charities. In January, the brothers were part of a group that presented a $100,000 check to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston, Texas, on behalf of the Texas Self Storage Association. The Hunts also serve as the association’s fundraising committee co-chairs.
Based in Lancaster, Texas, Access Self Storage has locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. Its sister companies include Owners Management Co. and OMC Gate. The operation's website features a "Corporate Responsibility" tab, which highlights contests, events and other community outreach.
