Self Storage Company Just Wants to Help People Have a Place to Call Their Own

Posted on May 28 2013 - 11:01pm by Winnie Hsiu

When life gets to hectic it often feels like we are no longer living it anymore, but are instead reacting to the trials and tribulations that come our way. Our homes can be the same way. When space becomes an issue or when cramped and cluttered becomes the norm rather than spacious and cozy it’s like our homes are no longer our own.

They belong to our stuff instead of us.

In theory, self storage gives people a chance to do what they need to do—reclaim their home so they can call it their own once again. With storage units of varying sizes there are plenty of options to help clear the clutter and make a home a home.

There are many people that do not have to worry about this kind of problem because they don’t have a home. Many members of the self storage industry make it a practice to try and help such people that are down on their luck–like A-1 Self Storage, one of the premier self storage providers in California.

A-1 Self Storage has a history of giving back to the community, but not just their local community. The company has made it a practice to get involved with charities all over the world. Recently they made a donation to the Iris Ministries’ Generation Won in support of the  “A Place to Call My Own” project.

“We are honored to support at risk children in Harare, Zimbabwe” said Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage. “It is humbling to know our contribution will support several thousand children in need of basic life necessities that we all take care granted.”   

With the help of this donation the Ministry hopes to establish a presence in Harare, Zimbabwe so they can try and help the many orphaned children living on the streets.

Charity has long been an important part of doing business for A-1 Self Storage, much like it is for many self storage facilities around the country and world. Earlier this month the company donated to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

“Because it’s often difficult to diagnose one disease over the other, we encourage you to seek proper medical testing by your doctor if you’re experiencing any symptoms so they can provide you with an accurate diagnosis,” said Caster.
