San Diego, CA – December 27, 2012 – A-1 Self Storage, the premier provider of self storage in California, announced today their monetary donation to National Alliance on Mental Illness San Diego. NAMISD began around a kitchen table in 1970 where parents who had an adult child suffering from schizophrenia could find understanding and support. Over the next 30 years, NAMISD morphed into an unique support organization for both those diagnosed with mental illness and their families. Due to NAMI’s bold endeavors, mental illness is no longer considered the fault of the parents. Rather than suffer guilt, parents are given an informative hug of information through NAMISD and hope through its programs. Family to family support is coordinated and peer to peer support is established for the one affected with mental illness. Seeing dramatic improvements in the lives of those they serve, NAMISD has great hopes for further increasing the visibility of their programs and organization to positively impact San Diegans.

Someone generously donated 300 Beanie Babies for Toys for Toys at our A-1 Self Storage La Mesa – Center Dr. location! These cute, little critters were overflowing from boxes throughout the office. The store associates were starting to get used to seeing their smiling faces everyday but they’ve finally left us yesterday as the Marine Corps Reservists came by to pick them up, along with the other 285 toys this location collected. While our Beanie Babies friends will be missed, we’re happy to know that they’ll soon be given a new home as Toys for Tots distributes them to deserving children this weekend.
Thank you everyone for your generosity and supporting Toys for Tots!
