Staples is building on its long-standing commitment to teachers with a $1 million donation to DonorsChoose.org. Through its Staples for Students campaign, Staples is working to raise awareness about the need to help teachers.
To help spread the word, Staples partnered with Katy Perry to create a public service announcement to showcase the work DonorsChoose.org does and encourage donations through Staples stores.
Teachers bring learning to life for students across the country. Over the past two years, Staples for Students has helped bring thousands of projects to life, impacting more than 200,000 students and helping more than 2,000 teachers get the supplies they need.
To expand their impact, this year Staples customers also have the chance to win a $50,000 scholarship—and a trip to L.A. to meet Katy Perry! Details on sweepstakes entry can be found at StaplesForStudents.com.
In addition to their work with DonorsChoose.org, Staples Teacher Appreciation Day will take place in all Staples stores on August 17th. Every teacher can receive 10% off their purchase by showing their teacher ID; and the first 100 teachers at each store will receive a goody bag with free samples plus extra coupons. Teachers can also save on their back-to-school purchases with Staples by shopping the Less List for School, Weekly School Steals, and using Teacher Rewards.
