Office Depot Foundation Helps South Florida Families at Thanksgiving for 15th Year

In keeping with our mission – Listen Learn Care − it has been a longstanding tradition for the Office Depot Foundation to help families in need in our local community before Thanksgiving. In 2016, the Foundation donated gift cards valued at $10,000 to 14 nonprofit organizations in Palm Beach County for them to share with the families they serve. These donations make it possible for deserving families to buy turkeys and many other items they need to celebrate the holiday. The program marked its 16th year in 2016. “Every year, there are families right here in our community who sit down to an empty table on Thanksgiving Day. One canned good might not mean much to us, but to the families we serve, it means the world,” said James S. Gavrilos, executive director of Boca Helping Hands. “The Office Depot Foundation is touching lives right here in the local community. We could not do Thanksgiving without them.”
