Staples fully funded the balance of every project that was on DonorsChoose.org in the Washington, D.C. community today. This $43,994 donation helped 47 teachers fulfill classroom needs and helped more than 3,900 students in the D.C. public school district. For example, Ms. Lee, a teacher at Francis L. Cardozo Education Campus, will receive test prep books and flashcards for her new AP Psychology class; and Ms. Rukavina, a teacher at Calvin Coolidge Senior High School, will now have classroom supplies, history books, and technology to project lessons from her laptop.

“I’m glad to partner with Staples on my Prismatic World Tour to raise awareness and funds for DonorsChoose.org, and to remind my fans that a small gesture can have a huge impact on the very basic materials classrooms need for teachers to help students reach their full potential,” said Katy Perry.
