At STAPLES Business Depot we are committed to contributing to each and every community we serve, coast-to-coast, as well as contributing to the good works of Canada’s national organizations.
We have been a national sponsor of Special Olympics Canada since 1996. With the help of our customers and associates, STAPLES Business Depot’s annual in-store Give a Dollar Share a Dream campaign has raised an additional $800,000, over 3 years, for Special Olympics athletes to attend National and World Games.
Another way we get involved is our annual support of United Way. One of our most loved annual events has been our BIKE CHALLENGE where associates from our Home Office encourage donations from across Canada by biking 100 km and accepting sprint challenges!
We are proud to support education through our annual scholarship program for associates and their families. Each year we sponsor an annual writing challenge contest to encourage creativity and writing skills for children ages 4-13. We offer a teacher appreciation frequent buyer program and our president sits on the Advisory board for the Ryerson Retail Management Program.
Our corporate sponsorships and donations program helps support the work of regional and national organizations throughout the year and our store community involvement program ensures that every STAPLES Business Depot location in Canada is able to contribute directly to their communities.
