Staples for Education

Thank you Calgary!

Staples for Education

The Staples for Education program fills backpacks each year for children whose families struggle to cover back-to-schools expenses. Backpacks are filled with support from generous Calgarians. The program has made a big difference in the lives of children and over the years our program has filled thousands of backpacks with school supplies.

The Staples for Education program believes that children need the right tools to succeed when they start a new school year. The program accepts requests for support from low-income Calgarians. Staples stores collect the needed money and school supply donations to fill the need. Supplies are then packed by Staples staff and community volunteers. Through a partnership with the Calgary Board of Education, backpacks are provided to students at the beginning of the school year.
