Staples, Argentia demonstrated its culture of giving back to the community for the 9th consecutive year, by selecting Peel Children’s Centre as the “Charity of Choice” for their 2014 School Supply Drive. The campaign once again achieved much success, raising close to $4000 for the purchase of new school supplies. Such generosity from both the customers and the Staples staff, allowed at risk children and youth who are receiving mental health support at Peel Children’s Centre, to benefit from much needed supplies for the new school year.
“Staples, Argentia continues to work tirelessly in supporting our vision of; ‘A caring community working together for children and youth’ ”, said C.E.O Humphrey Mitchell. “Peel Children’s Centre extends our heartfelt thanks to Staples, Argentia on behalf of the children, youth and their families.”
The Annual School Supply Drive is part of “Staples Soul”, a holistic approach to corporate responsibility that recognizes the close connection between Staples’ financial success and its desire to make a positive impact on its associates, communities, and the planet by joining together the following areas: diversity, the environment, our community, and ethics.
