Office Depot Foundation Invites U.S. Middle Schools To Apply To Host Assemblies Against Bullying

The Office Depot Foundation – the independent, nonprofit philanthropic arm of Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of school supplies and services - invites middle schools across the United States to participate in the Foundation’s new “Be The Difference. Speak Up Against Bullying!” Program.

At the core of the program are school assemblies for students as well as anti-bullying education sessions for parents, teachers and administrators conducted by nationally known speaker Brooks Gibbs. A youth crisis counselor and bullying expert, Gibbs has spoken to more than one million students about bullying in the past decade.

Middle school administrators and guidance counselors interested in applying to bring an assembly to their school through the “Be The Difference. Speak Up Against Bullying!” Program should visit the Office Depot Foundation website at to begin the application process.

In July, Office Depot and global music phenomenon One Direction launched an exclusive, limited-edition back-to-school collection with a percentage of the products’ sales being donated to the Office Depot Foundation to support anti-bullying education. The 1D + OD Together Against Bullying back-to-school campaign raised $1 million for the Office Depot Foundation’s anti-bullying education component of the multi-tiered partnership. The donation was presented to the Foundation in conjunction with the U.S. premiere of the new One Direction film, This Is Us, in New York.

“We are exceptionally grateful to Office Depot and One Direction for enabling us to launch this critically important initiative,” said Mary Wong, President of the Office Depot Foundation. “Brooks Gibbs already has made his first presentations for students, parents and educators in Texas and Michigan. He will be appearing in the Boston area this week and in New York and New Jersey after that. Altogether, we will make it possible for Brooks to share his message in approximately 100 cities during the new school year, and we are pleased to say that we are off to a fast start.”
