Staples National School Supply Drive Partnership

Staples National School Supply Drive Partnership - This Summer, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Staples are teaming up with Teen actor, Jake T. Austin, for the 6th Annual Staples for Students national school supply drive, to help kids get the tools they need to build great futures. From 6/30 to 9/28 Staples customers can donate $1 or more at their local Staples store with 100% of the proceeds benefitting local students from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester. “I’m so excited to team up with Staples and Boys and Girls Clubs of America for this great cause,” said Jake T. Austin. “I’m rallying my fellow teens to get involved to help make a difference in their communities by making sure students have the essential supplies they need to succeed.” To kick-start the campaign, Staples will donate $125,000 worth of school supplies to the program this year. Since 2008, the campaign has raised nearly $3 million for hundreds of thousands of students in need throughout the country. Past celebrity influencers have included Jordin Sparks, Ciara, Nikki Reed, the cast of Pretty Little Liars and Bella Thorne. Local stores participating in the partnership include: the Ames Plaza Store (120 Main Street in Weymouth); the Riverway Plaza Store (729 Bridge Street in Weymouth); and the Dorchester Store (757 Gallivan Boulevard in Dorchester).
