Muru Office Supplies

Indigenous Community Programs

We are passionate about creating pathways for our people and supporting Indigenous community programs. As a result, it’s part of our culture and even our company name! Muru means “pathway” in the language of the coastal Sydney region.

Our Contribution

Muru means “pathway” in the language of the coastal Sydney region. Our vision is to create a pathway for future generations of Indigenous people.

We do this by donating a percentage of all company profits to support Indigenous community programs. Our focus is on Education, Employment, and Health & Wellbeing.

Partnering with Muru Office Supplies not only provides a commercial benefit with an exceptional customer experience. It also provides the opportunity for our clients to form a partnership with shared goals. As a result, we are able to create both tangible and intangible benefits to the Indigenous community and our people.

Every transaction with MOS helps drive these outcomes! So next time you place an order with one of our competitors, ask yourself, what outcomes am I creating?

Community Program

Early Childhood Education

Historically, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children begin their primary school education behind. With a clear gap in their literacy and numeracy skills.

The early childhood education program we support operates three days a week. The aim of the program is to improve literacy and numeracy skills through structured play.

Over 30 Indigenous children receive free access to this program. Providing a safe and fun environment to assist them in successfully transitioning into the public school system.

Muru has been supporting the program since FY16. We are committed to providing support while we continue to see significant outcomes for the local Indigenous community.

IndigiGrow is a social enterprise created based La Perouse.

The program is focused on the propagation and revitalisation of native plants. Including bush food and the critically endangered Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub. IndigiGrow also advocates for the increased participation of the Indigenous community in the bush food industry.

Muru’s contribution began in July 2019. We are supporting the employment of two Aboriginal trainees. The trainees will gain hands-on horticultural trade skills and learn about the cultural significance of native plants & bush foods.

Mudgin-Gal

One Off Donations

Muru also provides one-off donations to support other amazing  Indigenous community organisations. As a result, we are able to help them to achieve outcomes for our people.

One such organisation is Mudgin-Gal, meaning “Women’s Place”.

Mudgin-Gal is an Aboriginal organisation delivering support, referrals, and community-based services to Aboriginal women and families in inner-city Sydney since 1992. It aims to build the capability of Aboriginal women and families through the delivery of skills-based programs, whilst also providing a safe space for vulnerable women
