Office Depot Helps Florida Teachers Stretch State Funds Further

Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE:ODP), a longtime supporter of teachers and leading global provider of school supplies and services, applauds the State of Florida's commitment to education through additional investment in the Teachers Classroom Supply Assistance Program, announced this week by Governor Rick Scott.

In ongoing support of education in its home state, Office Depot is helping teachers stretch their $250 state-issued assistance funds by offering 20 percent off qualifying purchases during its Office Depot Rewards™ Star Teacher Appreciation Events.

To take full advantage of the great savings, teachers are encouraged to shop for their classrooms today through Sunday during the tax-free shopping weekend (August 2-4).

“We compliment the State of Florida and Governor Scott for their hard work and dedication in making additional funds available to Florida teachers,” said Neil Austrian, Chairman and CEO of Office Depot. “We are privileged to provide an extensive list of school supplies that will assist teachers in their efforts to educate today’s youth.”

Leading up to the start of the school year in the sunshine state, Office Depot will continue to honor teachers by offering special deals, discounts and complimentary breakfast to thousands of educators across Florida as part of the Company’s signature Office Depot Rewards Star Teacher Appreciation Events.

The events will be held at Office Depot stores across the state during select weeks this summer. Welcome breakfasts that kick off eight-day events started on Saturday, July 27 in some areas. To find local dates and more information on Teacher Appreciation Events, teachers can visit  www.officedepotrewards.com/tab.

Advantages of participating in Teacher Appreciation Events include:

  • 20 percent discount on qualifying purchases (maximum discount of $20) just by scanning the Star Teacher card at check-out*
  • Bonus Points for every $1 spent on products from event sponsors such as Carson-Dellosa, Paper Mate, Sharpie, Expo, Crayola, Scotch, Post-it, Avery, and Pilot**
  • Complimentary breakfast on a designated Saturday to kick off the eight-day celebration of back-to-school teacher shopping advantages
