United Way

In 2015, ORIX joined the Macquarie Business Park Partnership. This first-of-its-kind collaboration currently supports over 275 local families through the Gift of Reading program targeted at 0-5 year olds who receive a book a month, while their parents receive literacy support and free educational resources and involvement in community events.

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.

ORIX & Foodbank

A non-denominational and non-profit organisation, Foodbank acts as a pantry to charities and community groups who feed the hungry, as well as a conduit between the food industry’s surplus and the welfare sector’s need.

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.
