Staples, a longtime supporter of City Year, has donated 650 school supply kits to City Year teams across the country. Here at City Year Boston, they donated 46 school supply kits to City Year Boston's 23 school teams. These kits will give City Year AmeriCorps members the tools they need to serve 12,000 students across 23 Boston Public Schools this year. The kits, which include pencils, notebooks, dry erase markers and paper, will help City Year better serve students by providing them with tools to they need to increase academic achievement and student engagement.
“Staples is committed to improving education for students in the communities in which we live and work,” said Regis Mulot, EVP and chief HR officer, Staples. “We’re honored to work with City Year and have the opportunity to supply teachers and students with essential tools they need to succeed as they go back to school year.”
Staples began partnering with City Year in 2014 by sponsoring a team of City Year Boston AmeriCorps members serving at Rogers Middle School. Staples went on to support City Year Boston’s Curley K-8 School beginning in 2015, where they remain the proud team sponsor.
