As individuals and businesses start their planning for 2014, Office Depot, Inc., a leading global provider of office supplies and printing services, is now offering AT-A-GLANCE® planning and organizing products that can assist them, while benefiting a great cause—Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. For every WWP product sold through Office Depot, AT-A-GLANCE, which is a part of ACCO Brands, will donate a portion of the sale to WWP.
“We’re very proud of our relationship with Office Depot and delighted to have our Wounded Warrior Project products featured in its stores across the country,” said Thomas W. Tedford, President, U.S. Office and Consumer Products, ACCO Brands. “The successful launch of these products with Office Depot is a true ‘win-win’ endeavor that ultimately benefits Wounded Warrior Project.”
The AT-A-GLANCE WWP products are designed to give individuals the ability to better organize schedules and appointments. The product line includes planners, wall calendars, desk pads and appointment books, and can be found at Office Depot stores, as well as online at http://www.officedepot.com.
“We are very excited to offer these products which combine a great cause in Wounded Warrior Project with AT-A-GLANCE, a true leader in the planning and productivity space,” said Linda Boykin, Vice President of Supplies Merchandising at Office Depot. “These products provide the perfect opportunity to individuals and businesses alike who want to show their support of our injured U.S. service men and women.”
“Wounded Warrior Project has much reason to celebrate this year as we recognize our 10-year anniversary,” said Brea Kratzert, Director, Strategic Partnerships, Wounded Warrior Project. “Seeing these great WWP AT-A-GLANCE products on the Office Depot shelves gives us even more reason to celebrate, as these great companies do their parts in supporting our mission and vision.”
WWP receives a portion of the proceeds generated by the new AT-A-GLANCE WWP items through the end of 2014. A minimum of $125,000 has been pledged by AT-A-GLANCE, with the total donation expected to exceed that amount.
