Impact Thrift Stores Chosen by Local Staples Associates to Receive $3500 Grant
Montgomeryville, PA – Impact Thrift Stores has been awarded $3500 by Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples, Inc., under a program that lets Staples associates direct donations.
“Supporters such as the Staples Foundation enable Impact Thrift to further our mission to financially support local charities and positively impact local communities. The funds will be used to support our Impact LIVE Student Leadership Program which teaches students of all ages how to organize a charitable collection drive event at their school to support local charities,” said Tamika Miller, Director of Community Outreach for Impact Thrift. “Impact LIVE is intended to not only add value to the student’s educational experience, but it also is designed to serve as a way for Impact Thrift to obtain quality donations to continue its service to the community.”
The grants are part of a philanthropic initiative created by Staples Foundation which allows Staples associates around the world to direct funding to non-profit organizations that are focused on education or job skills. The program encourages local community engagement by awarding larger grants to organizations where associates are highly engaged in volunteering or fundraising – up to $25,000 per organization.
