Airbiz believes in the importance of giving back to communities and providing support to community organisations and individuals who have suffered as a consequence of natural disasters. Biannually Airbiz holds volunteer days in which the full team works together to deliver tangible benefits to local communities and individuals.
Over many years Airbiz has provided assistance to a range of organisations in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Fiji including food banks, youth and community groups, bushfire, earthquake and flood recovery programs, and wildlife sanctuaries. Our most recent project was a painting day at Murray Human Services, an organisation that provides employment to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our efforts are always invigorating and meaningful to the team, our company culture and the communities we serve.
