NASCAR® Driver Tony Stewart And The Office Depot Foundation Team Up To Give 6,000 Sackpacks To Kids In The Atlanta Area

Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of office supplies and services, and the Office Depot Foundation today announced that Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet in the NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series™, will join the Foundation to donate 6,000 new sackpacks to non-profit organizations, schools, and agencies in and around the Atlanta area.

The Office Depot Foundation will present the sackpacks, which contain essential school supplies, during a special “Back-to-School Celebration” beginning at 3:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday, August 29, at the Office Depot store located at 2126 Henderson Mill Road in Atlanta. In addition to Stewart, special guest Georgia State Representative Sharon Beasley-Teague is scheduled to attend.

Stewart is partnering with the Office Depot Foundation for the fourth consecutive year to support the Foundation’s National Backpack Program, which is donating 400,000 sackpacks throughout the 2012 back-to-school season – the most given out in a single year. By the end of this year, the National Backpack Program will have helped more than 2.9 million kids worldwide since 2001.

“It’s really great to be joining the Office Depot Foundation for another event during this back-to-school season,” said Stewart, the three-time and reigning NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series™ champion. “These cool sackpacks continue to make a positive impact on the kids who receive them, and I’m very proud to be a part of such an important program. Being able to help provide kids-in-need with the essential school supplies necessary to start the year off right is the most rewarding thing I’ll do all year.”

The non-profit organizations, schools and agencies scheduled to receive sackpacks during the “Back-to-School Celebration” on August 29 include:
  • Atlanta Kids in Need Resource Center
