California self-storage provider A-1 Self Storage is giving back to the community through participation in local charitable events and monetary contributions.
The company made a contribution to the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center and competed in its 19th Annual Longboard Invitational Surf for the Cure event on Aug. 19 at Scripps Beach in San Diego. During the event, each company-sponsored surf team paired up with a surfing legend to compete. The A-1 team took first place.
Moores Cancer Center, which is one of 40 National Cancer Institute Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers nationwide, helped raise awareness and funds for cancer research, educational programs, outreach and patient care at the surf event.
A-1 also gave a donation to Saint Martin de Porres High School. Located in one of Cleveland's economically challenged areas, Porres High School serves students in communities who have limited access to private education, and gives students the individual attention that encourages them to thrive and excel in their educational experience through campus ministry.
San Miguel Cristo Rey High Schools internship program also received a donation from A-1. The school was established in response to an education deficit in Tucson, Ariz., to create a learning community for students who were born into families of limited financial means.
A-1 Self Storage has 17 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 Southern California since 1959.
