Team Fort Knox prepares to Sleep at The G!


Last year a group of our 10 of our team gave up the comforts of a warm cozy bed for the cold harsh concrete of the famous MCG to raise money for Melbourne City Mission’s “Sleep at The G” campaign. Fort Knox Self Storage is proud to once again be partnering with Melbourne City Mission in a fight to help end youth homelessness.

We are preparing for the cold night ahead. On Thursday May 22nd our team of 12 Storage Experts will brave the elements and experience the famous iconic MCG as they have never before. Cold, dark, with the roar of the howling wind and nothing but a cardboard box for comfort our team will rise to the challenge.

As a family owned and operated Melbourne business it is heartbreaking to think that while most of us enjoy the warmth and comfort of a bed there are 6000 youth’s homeless sleeping on the streets of Melbourne each night. It is hard to fathom that in one of the most liveable cities in the world, Melbourne has so many children who are homeless. Many of them due to either poverty, family breakdown, abuse or neglect.

Here at Fort Knox, our team is our family, and we are pleased to offer support to community organisations like Melbourne City Mission that share the same family values that we do. This event not only improves the bond between our team of 12 sleepers but cultivates and strengthens the mateship amongst the greater team as they rally around us with support and sponsorship.
So as the temperatures drop over the coming weeks our spirits soar as we work together to raise as much money as possible in our fight to end youth homelessness and make our city a better place to live.
