Staples fully funded the balance of every project that was on DonorsChoose.org in the Atlanta, GA community today. This $128,158 donation helped 77 teachers fulfill classroom needs and helped 8,779 students in the Atlanta public school district. For example, Matthew Hall at Bunche Middle School will receive flutes, clarinets, a flugelhorn, a saxophone, and a digital piano for his school’s music program; and Pauline Weisz at Ronald E. McNair Senior High School had digital cameras, photo editing software, printers, and tripods funded for her art classes.

“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.
