A-1 Self Storage in San Diego, CA joins with Serving Hands International to distribute tarps to prepare for winter storms in Tijuana, Baja CA, Mexico.

San Diego, CA– February 26, 2010– A-1 Self Storage, the premier provider of self storage in San Diego County, today announced their support towards needy families in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico and have partnered with Serving Hands International to distribute over 1,000 tarps to help them prepare for winter storms in remote areas where most homes aren't built to withstand storm conditions. Many of these homes were poorly built, often times with recycled or scrap materials.

"A1 Self Storage is proud to support this program. We understand the difficulties these families face with current economic conditions, combined with the poor infrastructure in our neighboring city, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.” said Brian Caster, President and CEO of Caster Companies. "We feel it is important to support our neighbors south of the U.S. border and these tarps are much needed to help them protect their homes.”

Over 1,000 tarps were distributed by Serving Hands International, a public, non-profit, tax exempt organization under 501(c)(3) of the International Revenue Code (EIN 95-3797996). A-1 Self Storage is a proud supporter of Serving Hands International and has partnered with them on numerous other projects.
