Fighting hunger in Australia
ORIX & Foodbank
Teams of volunteers from ORIX assist the permanent volunteers and staff at Foodbank with activities like picking and packing food orders and other general warehouse duties.
Giving time to assist others in need – and learning how vital volunteer manpower is to initiatives like Foodbank – is a very rewarding experience for everyone at ORIX, with all teams finding the work extremely satisfying and humbling.
ORIX started supporting the Humpty Dumpty Foundation in 2015 by sponsoring the Balmoral Burn - an event created by Wallaby great Phil Kearns. Each year families, corporations, children and pets take on the Balmoral Burn – a 420m race course up Awaba Street in Mosman, providing much needed support and awareness for this worthwhile charity.
Helping Australian kids succeed
The Partnership also incorporates the Ready to Succeed program which supports local high school students from Marsden High School at risk of leaving school early. Employees from ORIX and other corporate partners within the Macquarie Business Park provide real-life work experience opportunities and mentoring both at the school and within the workplace, helping reinforce the value of study for future career prospects, and of positive work experiences.
ORIX is proud to be supporting United Way through the Macquarie Business Park Partnership.
