Orion Outreach (O2)
“Breathing change into our communities…”

It’s been a fantastic 2023 here at Orion Office REIT for our Orion Outreach initiatives. As we reflect on 2023, we are thrilled at the impact we made and look forward to making 2024 even more successful!

Food Drives:

Benefiting St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix, AZ & Hour Children in New York, NY.

St. Mary’s Food Bank exists to help feed hungry families throughout Phoenix and nine Arizona counties. For this initiative, we donated 56lbs of food which is equivalent to 47 meals. We also donated $960 which is equivalent to 4,800 meals bringing us to a total of 4,847 meals provided back to the Phoenix community.

Hour Children is a leading provider of services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women in New York State. Focused on women and their children, Hour Children supports families during a mother’s incarceration and helps families get back on their feet upon release. We donated an assortment of items for Hour Children ranging from canned food to diapers. Additionally, we raised over $1,075 in cash donations for Hour Children to help families in the NY communities.

Hands on Volunteer Event:

Benefiting Feed My Starving Children & The Bowery Mission

Both the Phoenix and NY offices had the opportunity to volunteer for a hands-on event. Phoenix volunteered at Feed My Starving Children a non-profit organization that provides food to impoverished children all over the world. Phoenix employees hand packed MannaPacks (which include rice, soy, vegetables, and vitamins/minerals). Together the Phoenix office packed 119 boxes, which provides 25,704 meals and feeds 70 kids a daily meal for a year. New York volunteered at The Bowery Mission which exists to promote the flourishing of New Yorkers overcoming homelessness and marginalization by providing compassionate services and transformative community. Together the NY office prepped meals in real time and learned that their efforts would help approximately 130 vulnerable New Yorkers that evening. Both volunteer events were both humbling and rewarding.

Tennis Event:

Serve The Future Triples Tournament.

Serve The Future is a registered NJTP (National Junior Tennis and Learning) network that gives students in underserved communities in Arizona the opportunity to learn and develop on and off the tennis court. Orion had the privilege of being a sponsor – Over $40K was raised in total for the event that day.


Benefiting AAWL (Arizona Animal Welfare League)

The Arizona Animal Welfare League is the largest and oldest no-kill shelter in Arizona. A "no-kill" shelter is an animal shelter that does not kill healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is full. The Phoenix office was able to participate in the AAWL’s Walk to Save Animals event. Employees were able to bring their dogs and participate in this annual 5K walk to help keep this no-kill shelter open and a success.

Toy Drives:

Benefiting Ronald McDonald Holiday Toy Drive

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the health and well-being of children and their families. RMHC provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill children who are receiving medical treatment at hospitals far from their homes.

Orion team members at its Phoenix office rallied to “fill the tree” for the RMHC of Central and Northern Arizona houses. Together, we collected toys, gift cards, wrapping supplies, infant care products, and everyday essentials to help Arizona families in need.

Office Supply Donation:

Benefiting York College CUNY

As part of their recent office move, Orion’s New York office donated unused office supplies to York College CUNY.
