Disney Star Pairs Up with Boys & Girls Club to Promote Staples for Students Supply Drive

Oxnard, CA (July 30, 2013) – This summer, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Staples (Nasdaq: SPLS) are teaming up with teen actor Jake T. Austin, for the 6th annual Staples for Students national school supply drive, to help kids get the tools they need to build great futures.

From June 30 to September 28, Staples customers can donate $1 or more at their local Staples store with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting local students at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Staples for Students school supply drive supports this mission by helping young people return to school prepared to learn and succeed.

The local Staples store to make a donation is located at Esplanade Shopping Ctr.411 Esplanade Drive Oxnard, CA 93036.

“I’m so excited to team up with Staples and Boys & Girls Clubs of America for this great cause,” said Jake T. Austin. “I’m rallying my fellow teens to get involved to help make a difference in their communities by making sure students have the essential supplies they need to succeed.”

To kick-start the campaign, Staples will donate $125,000 worth of school supplies to the program this year. Staples and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America will ensure that all of the donations get to the local Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme in time for the new school year. Since 2008, the campaign has raised nearly $3 million for hundreds of thousands of students in need throughout the country. Past celebrity influencers have included Jordin Sparks, Ciara, Nikki Reed, the cast of Pretty Little Liars and Bella Thorne.
