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.
