Office Depot Foundation Supports Kids with National Backpack Program!

Every day, millions of kids carry their stuff to school in plastic grocery bags because they can’t afford a backpack. One innovative way to tackle this problem is to put free backpacks into the hands of children who need them the most. Suddenly, they’re just like other kids. Suddenly, they have hope.

During the past 11 years, the Office Depot Foundation has provided more than 2.5 million backpacks to deserving children in local communities across North America and as far away as China through its  – a large-scale example of corporate social responsibility, and a very personal way one organization is making a difference.

 The Foundation will mark the 12th anniversary of the program this year by giving away approximately 400,000 colorful new backpacks containing essential school supplies – the most it has ever donated in a single year. But while these numbers are very large, the backpacks make an impact on a singular level − one child at a time.

How do you give back to your community at Back-To-School Time? 

DISCLOSURE: I was not compensated for this post. Office Depot sent me 3 backpacks which will be donated to my local school system.
