Staples is currently holding its 8th annual back-to-school supply drive, with the proceeds from the North Delta location supporting Delta kids.
Staples is collecting cash and product donations until Sept. 9, with the proceeds going towards children in the Delta School District.
“We are honoured to be supported by Staples and by the local community. Every community has families that can use some additional support, and being able to provide school supplies to these families is truly beneficial,” said Delta School District Supt. Dianne Turner. “We are so thankful to the North Delta Staples store manager, Derek Bay, and his team for helping our students every year.”
Staples recently presented the Delta School District with the fundraising efforts from last year’s school supply drive – $8,608.88, which is now being used to purchase supplies for all 24 elementary schools in the district.
Over the past eight years, Staples has donated nearly $50,000 worth of supplies to the Delta School District via the supply drive.
The Staples for Students School Supply Drive is a national event. Last year, across Canada more than $1.3 million was raised for more than 250 schools and charities.
