Access Self Storage Raises Over $8000 For Local Area Education


    accesslogoIf there’s one thing to be said about Access Self Storage and Bienvenidos Restaurant, it’s that they know how to throw a party! And when communities in Red Oak and Lancaster get together for some fun, their children reap the benefits.

    Three years ago, with the first summer Fiesta Fundraiser (then called the Boot Scootin’ Benefit), Access brought customers, employees, and friends together to raise money for area education. This year, the event has grown beyond a single party at a single location, and even more students will see the rewards.

    Fiesta-ers had their pick of events, both held at Bienvenidos restaurant, one on June 7th and one on June 21st. In addition to a delicious dinner provided by Bienvenidos, attendees enjoyed a cake walk, authentic Mexican music, silent auction items, and a live auction hosted by Walt Cade of A&E’s “Storage Wars: Texas.”silentauction

    Both evenings were a raging success, each bringing in over $4000 for a grand total of $8700. Proceeds will be donated to the Lancaster Education Foundation, the Lancaster Outreach Center, the Red Oak Education Foundation, and the Ellis County Outreach Center.

    Planning for next year’s fiesta fundraisers begins today and promises to bring events that will continue to grow for years to come.

    About Access Self Storage

    In 1972, when W.J. Hunt and his son, Doug, opened the first Access Self Storage facility in Garland, they stood in the middle of two extremes – shady self-storage facilities without an illusion of safety or security and corporate franchise facilities with no sense of heart. Self-storage companies had been seen as a necessary evil, the places where you could store the things that outgrew your home, but you simply had to hope for the best when you locked your unit and drove away from what was rarely more than a few sheets of corrugated aluminum. The Hunts were determined to become something different. In response to the need they saw, the Hunts founded a company based on three principles: safety, security, and service. Because of this dedication and professional pride, Access Self Storage, now run by brothers Doug and David Hunt, has risen to the top of the industry and routinely wins awards for excellence in all three of these areas.
