NJWC Chosen by Staples Associate To Receive $500 Grant
NJWC has been awarded $500 by Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples, Inc., under a program that lets Staples associates direct donations.
These grants are part of a philanthropic initiative created by Staples Foundation which allows Staples associates around the world to direct funding to non-profit organizations that are focused on education or job skills. The program encourages local community engagement by awarding larger grants to organizations where associates are highly engaged in volunteering or fundraising - up to $25,000 per organization.
The program, called 2 Million and Change, awards funds to organizations around the world, reaching more than $2 million in grants by the end of the year. In a previous year, associates globally directed more than $2.4 million of Staples Foundation grants to over 1,000 non-profit organizations.
"Staples Foundation is committed to encouraging associates around the globe to make a difference in their local communities and through 2 Million and Change we enable them to directly support the programs where they personally see the greatest need," said Emily McCann, senior manager of community and giving for Staples, Inc.
