Community Involvement

Project Enrich


“One of our core values is ‘individual and corporate commitment to our communities’.  For Origin, this means more than fancy words that are written to impress our stakeholders.  Much more.  Each year, Origin’s Project Enrich program gives our employees up to 20 hours each to be taken during work hours for the purpose of volunteering at an organization of their choice in our communities.  Food banks, after-school clubs, financial literacy groups, disaster clean-up projects, and poverty relief organizations are just a few of the community organizations that benefit from our employee’s physical efforts to help their local neighbors.  This is all in addition to the annual monetary gifts from our employees given to these and other organizations.  Enriching our communities is an organic overflow of the vibrant culture we enjoy as Origin employees.” - Lonnie Scarborough, Executive Vice President, Chief Dream Manager & Talent Development Officer

Since the program launched in 2013, Origin Bank employees have logged 10,925 Project Enrich hours volunteering in our communities.
