In the coming year, the Kroc Center will offer scholarships to allow children, families, and seniors to participate in programs that encourage them to discover their talents, and promote creativity, wellness, spiritual discovery, and community engagement.
The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center is a 12.4 –acre family support, education, recreation, and cultural arts center, made possible by a generous gift by the late philanthropist Mrs. Joan Kroc. In keeping with the mission and holistic approach of The Salvation Army, the Kroc Center provides opportunities that facilitate positive life-changing experiences.
Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage, said “Thanks to the HEROES Campaign, many families in the San Diego area will be awarded scholarships enabling them to experience the wonderful programs like swim lessons, karate lessons, summer and winter camps. We are excited to be a part of the campaign and look forward to hearing of its success.”
It’s not too late to get your summer storage unit, Tritons! University of California, San Diego residence halls are officially closing at noon on Saturday, June 14th, and we’ve got you covered. At A-1 Self Storage, we can meet all of your summer storage needs!

Good organization will help you save space, and help you easily locate an item in your storage unit. Here are some tips to help you organize your storage space:
Boxes or plastic containers should be labeled with a short list of its contents.
Bring in plastic, wood, or metal free-standing shelves to hold boxes or other small items. This will help keep the floor clutter-free, and make accessing your unit a breeze!
Before moving items into your storage unit, think of what you will need to access the most. Place items you do not need to access frequently toward the back of your unit, and those items you need often near the front.
Using the same size boxes makes stacking them much easier, and help keep your items safe and organized. If you need packing supplies such as dish boxes, wardrobe boxes, or file boxes, you can purchase them in our office.
Place heavy items near the bottom of your storage unit. This will allow for stacking light weight items on top to save space, and stay as organized as possible.
Having items packed and arranged properly will help keep your items safe and accessible while in self storage. Visit our website for more packing & storage tips!
We are proud to announce our support of the Lupus Foundation of Northern California!
The Lupus Foundation of Northern California (LFNC) was founded in 1978 in San Jose, CA. The organization was created in response to the lack of awareness about the little-understood, yet devastating illness called lupus. Lupus is an acute and chronic inflammatory disease that, for unknown reasons, causes the immune system to become hyperactive and attacks the body’s own healthy tissues and organs.
At least 50,000 Californians have been told by a doctor that they have lupus. Lupus affects more Americans than AIDS, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, sickle-cell anemia and cerebral palsy combined.
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms mimic other diseases. Presently, there is no cure for lupus. However, with early diagnosis and current methods of therapy, 80-90% of lupus patients can look forward to a normal lifespan.
We are honored to contribute to the Lupus Foundation of Northern California. Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage, said “This cause hits close to home, as a dear team member has been diagnosed with this autoimmune disease. Thank you to Lupus Foundation of Northern California for the support groups, education, and resources you are providing to patients with lupus.”
