Do Something 101. Make a difference. Media Center.

Join Ciara and help a student in need.

Staples is teaming up with Grammy® Winning Singer-Songwriter Ciara and for the 2nd Annual National Do Something 101 School Supply Drive.

The Do Something 101 campaign encourages teens to collect school supplies and drop them off at their nearest Staples® store, from July 5 through September 19, to ensure they get into the hands of deserving students just in time to head back to school. Staples is kick-starting the campaign by donating more than $125,000 in school supplies to the cause. In addition, Staples® customers can also get involved by donating $1 at any Staples® store location, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting local teens in need. All school supplies and donations will be given locally to educational and not-for-profit organizations that serve disadvantaged youth.

If you are interested in finding out more about local charity partners, please contact a member of the Staples PR team.

2nd Annual Staples/Do Something 101 national school supply drive event

Grammy® Winning singer-songwriter Ciara shared the spotlight with youth volunteers on August 4 in a national effort to empower teens to give back to the community. Ciara, joined by Chaske Spencer of Twilight and singer Leah Renee, worked side-by-side with volunteers during the 2nd Annual Staples/Do Something 101 national school supply drive event at The Children's Aid Society Dunlevy Milbank Boys & Girls Club in New York. The group filled 5,000 bags with notebooks, calculators, binders and other back-to-school essentials, which will be donated to local students in need in time for the upcoming school year.
