Disney star helps out Boys & Girls Clubs

The Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Staples have teamed 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.

Through Sept. 28, customers can donate $1 or more at their local Staples store with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting local students at our Club. The Staples store accepting donations on BGCOP’s behalf is located at Esplanade Shopping Center., 411 Esplanade Dr., Oxnard.

Teens are also encouraged to spread the word on social media by visiting the Staples for Students Facebook page, where Jake will take followers through an exciting series of interactive mission videos to help drive donations. As missions are completed, teens will be rewarded with donations on their behalf to Boys & Girls Clubs, coupon codes for school supplies and other exciting surprises.
To kick-start the campaign, Staples donated $125,000 worth of school supplies to the BGCA program this 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.
