Office Depot Foundation, Office Depot Help Hurricane Harvey Victims

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Houston and elsewhere along the Gulf Coast who have been affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. To assist Office Depot and OfficeMax associates affected by the storms, the Office Depot Foundation has set aside funds for its Disaster Grant Program, which helps associates dealing with natural disasters. On a larger scale, from now through the end of the year, customers in Office Depot and OfficeMax stores will have the opportunity to “round up” their purchases with all funds raised being donated to the Office Depot Foundation for Hurricane Harvey relief and long-term rebuilding. All other donations to the Foundation will be earmarked for this purpose until further notice. We are working closely with our partners at Feed the Children, which is already on the ground in Houston and the surrounding areas with relief supplies for local residents. To learn more about Feed the Children and its efforts, visit www.feedthechildren.org. As is always the case in disaster situations, it is better for individuals who want to help to make donations to nonprofit organizations such as Feed the Children and the Office Depot Foundation than it is to attempt to send clothing or supplies.
