AC Self Storage Solutions CEO Joins Charity Storage Board

Charity Storage, a not-for-profit foundation that raises money for charitable causes has offered a board seat to Troy Downing, Chief Executive Officer of AC Self Storage Solutions (“AC Self Storage”). AC Self Storage is a National owner, operator, and manager of Self Storage commercial real Estate.

Downing has been a long-time supporter, funder, advisor, and volunteer of many charitable organizations supporting everything from US Veteran issues, Education, and medical research. Most notably, Downing is a volunteer and supporter for Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, a Montana based foundation that offers therapeutic recreational programs for US Veterans who were injured in recent conflicts including OEF and OIF.

Charity Storage is an organization that raises money through donated items that are

auctioned off at normally scheduled lien auctions at Self Storage facilities. The facilities involved with the program donate a storage unit. Facility customers and local community members donate items to fill the unit. The proceeds from the sale of the donated items are donated to charities selected by the local owner/operator after being auctioned off during normally scheduled lien sales.

Part of the proceeds support KureIt which gives valuable support in the search for a cure for kidney cancer. The facility owner can choose a charity of their choice for the remaining funds raised in the program.

“I am honored that Charity Storage has reached out to me to fill a seat on their board” states Downing. “I think this is a great organization with a great idea that helps so many other worthy organizations raise funds to support their charitable work. This is good for the community, good for the storage operators who partner with Charity Storage, and is an easy step in our efforts to make the World a better place.”

Charity Storage currently supports the following causes (among others): KureIt Cancer Research, Self Storage Association Foundation, OCFOCF World’s Greatest Camp for Kids with Cancer, Child Abuse Prevention Center, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, The Maddie James Foundation, Ocean Institute, Souther California Aviation Mentoring Program, RePets Animal Rescue, Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Gilroy United Methodist Church, American Cancer Society, Bay Area Rescue Mission, Faith Fellowship Worship Center, Smile Train, Agape Villages Foster Family Agency, Wayside Waifs, Habitat for Humanity of Lexington, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption Association, ASPCA, American Diabetes Association, Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, American Heart Association, Children’s Medical Center, The American Red Cross, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and many more.
