A-1 Self Storage, an operator of self-storage facilities throughout California, has been designated an official drop-off location for the “Back-to-School Brigade” campaign, which is collecting donations of new school supplies for children of military families through July 18. The initiative is run by the Southern California Chapter of Operation Homefront, which provides emergency assistance and morale to U.S. troops, the families they leave behind, and wounded warriors.
A-1 is assisting with collecting donations throughout San Diego and Orange County, Calif. Some of the basic school supplies needed include: backpacks, calculators, crayons, glue sticks, pencils, rulers, scissors, etc. Children of all ages who participate in the program will be able to pick out their own backpack and fill it with the supplies they need for the school year.
For more information or to sponsor a backpack for a military child, visit www.a1storage.com/operation_homefront.
A-1 Self Storage has 17 locations in the greater San Diego County area and more than 40 locations across California. It is the self-storage division of the Caster Cos., a third-generation, family-owned company headquartered in Southern California since 1959.
