Teens ‘Do Something’ to Collect School Supplies for The Children’s Aid Society
As part of the 3rd Annual Staples/Do Something 101 Supply Drive, Nikki Reed, star of this summer’s blockbuster film Twilight: Eclipse, is encouraging New York City teens to make a difference this summer by collecting and donating school supplies at their local Staples store from July 4 through September 18 to support kids in need within their community. In addition, Staples customers can get involved by donating $1 at any Staples store with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting New York City students in need.
The Children’s Aid Society has been selected to participate in this program and receive donations – but we need your help! Support our youth who need supplies to return to school prepared to learn and succeed. Donations can be dropped off at any Staples store nationwide starting July 4th through September the 18th. Specific Staples stores that our organization has been partnered with include:
“Do Something 101 has done an amazing job in its first two years, and I’m excited to make the 2010 campaign the best yet,” said Nikki Reed. “Every donated pencil, notebook and other supplies can add up to make a big difference in improving education.”
During the first two Do Something 101 school supply drives, Staples and DoSomething.org, with the help from celebrity supporters Jordin Sparks and Ciara, raised more than $750,000.
To build on this success and help kick off the 2010 campaign, Nikki is starring in a public service announcement (PSA) that will air on television and radio stations nationwide through September. Staples is also donating more than $125,000 worth of school supplies to the program.
