Office Depot Announces Surprise Donation of Nearly $20,000 to Ten Guilford County Schools

November 21, 2022, Guilford County Schools (GCS) today announced that Office Depot is donating $19,964.25 to be divided among ten Guilford County Schools. On Monday, GCS, accompanied by district managers from Office Depot, surprised the schools by delivering nearly $2,000 each to be spent on supplies in local Office Depot and OfficeMax stores.


Office Depot leveraged its retail footprint and partnership with Round It Up America® to provide back-to-school shoppers and business clients with the opportunity to support Title I schools across the country. Thanks to the generosity shown by Office Depot and OfficeMax clients from July through September, nearly $2.2 million was collected to benefit Title I schools nationwide, including the following ten GCS schools:


  • Bessemer Elementary School
  • Bluford STEM Academy
  • Cone Elementary School
  • Fairview Elementary School
  • Falkener Elementary School
  • Gillespie Park Elementary School
  • Parkview Village Elementary School
  • Peck Elementary School
  • Washington Montessori Elementary School
  • Wiley Elementary School


“We’re excited to collaborate locally with GCS to support these ten schools with funds to help them stock up on the supplies they need for a successful school year,” said Jim McGoldrick, District Sales Manager for Office Depot.
