Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
Dollar Item Direct, a leading direct wholesaler of dollar items and general store merchandise announced today that it is launching a special program to assist charitable organizations that provide backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need in the United States and internationally. The program provides special discount pricing to the charitable organizations below the standard pricing offered on Dollar Item Direct's website.
"We are committed to helping school age children throughout the world to get the education they need," stated Dollar Item Direct President Dan Lehl. "Unfortunately, in many areas of the world parents can barely afford food and clothing for their families, let alone the school supplies needed in a classroom. We already provide very low prices for school supplies due to our volume purchases and warehousing capabilities. With this program, we lower our prices even more when the purchasing organization is a recognized charity, church, or bona-fide program to provide school supply backpacks to children in need."
To participate in the program, representatives of charitable organizations should contact Dollar Item Direct by phone at 1-866-764-3655 or send an email to orders(at)dollaritemdirect(dot)com. Dollar Item Direct will qualify the organizations and then arrange the discounted purchases of school supplies including the backpacks.
"We hope that even small, community-based backpack charitable drive programs will contact us as well as the larger organizations," stated Mr. Lehl. "Children in need exist everywhere, and we're here to help," he said.
