More ways to give back
Storage King is Australian owned and operated. We do business and live in local communities all across the country – bringing people together, inspiring change and making a difference is all part of being a good neighbour. Here are some fantastic community initiatives we proudly support.
We've listed below some of the community participation which our stores have been involved in.
Garage Sale Trail
Garage Sale Trail is happening right across Australia on Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 October 2020. It’s a big weekend encouraging us to put secondhand first and minimise our impact on the planet.
Garage Sale Trail happens with the support of Local Council partners across the country and nearly 400,000 bargain hunting, reuse loving Australians shopping and selling at more than 18,000 garage sale events Australia-wide.
Storage King has been a proud national partner of Garage Sale Trail for over 3 years.
GIVIT is a national not-for-profit connecting those who have with those who need, in a private and safe way.
They support all agencies, services and charities in Australia who work directly with impoverished, marginalised and vulnerable people. GIVIT makes it easier for organisations to empower their clients and improve quality of life by obtaining the items they require through the website, at no cost. The unique virtual warehouse eliminates the need for organisations to store, sort and dispose of unwanted items, saving valuable time and resources.
Storage King is proud to support the team at GIVIT.
Australian Rotary Clubs are part of an international network of business, professional and community leaders who strive to make the world a better place through practical efforts. Through Rotary International, the reward of "paying it forward" unites men and women from different backgrounds, cultures, religious and political beliefs the world over, allowing ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
Storage King has a long history of supporting Rotary Clubs all around the country with anti graffit programs, work with the disadvantaged and improving the lives of young people.
