We’re here to help our associates, customers and local communities when a crisis or disaster occurs.
Through our partnership with Save the Children, a leader in international disaster relief focused on supporting children in times of need, we're able to focus our giving on educational support. The Staples® Emergency Education Fund was established with Save the Children to help communities affected by disaster, with a primary focus on the 25 countries where we operate and large-scale international disasters.
