I have been picking up back to school clothing for several weeks, and the clothes are getting labeled and ready to take on a new year. I was feeling prepared until I suddenly realized that school starts in one week and I haven’t bought anything but clothes. My younger kids are heading to grades 2, 5 and 6 and my husband is heading back to school for his final school term for his apprenticeship. We need some actual school supplies!
I don’t want to join the crowds at the mall, going from store to store trying to find what they need. I want to get everything I need in one place, so Staples is where I’ll be heading. They have everything we could possibly need for all of the different grades, and I can even pick up some office supplies for myself. Even more importantly, Staples is helping students in need by holding a school supply drive. From now until September 8th Staples is collecting donations online and in stores to donate to local schools and also to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.
Staples Canada teamed up with global pop music superstar Katy Perry this year to “Make Roar Happen” and celebrate and support students during the back-to-school season. We are building on our long history of supporting teachers, students, and education by partnering with Katy Perry to help reach the milestone of $10 million in nine years – total funds and products raised since 2005 through our Annual School Supply Drive.
All kids deserve to start the school year with all of the supplies they need to succeed, so I intend to support Staples in this initiative. You can learn more about the Staples School Supply Drive and win great prizes at the #StaplesGoingBack Twitter Party!
