This year, Office Depot—sponsor of National PTA Back-to-School Week—made a substantial difference in the lives of families and educators across the country, by ensuring everyone got the supplies they need to succeed.
Through their Start Proud!™ program, Office Depot associates filled 20,000 backpacks with essentials like notebooks, folders, pencils, and glue and gifted them to students at Title 1 schools during 10 celebratory assemblies. Teachers weren’t left out; they received MONSTER palettes of supplies for their classrooms.
Office Depot also recognized one very special teacher at each Start Proud! assembly with $1,000 worth of premium supplies to celebrate their extraordinary efforts in the classroom.
