2018 marks the fourth year we have donated $100,000 to support Office Depot’s back-to-school initiatives.
Start Proud!™ is Office Depot’s new community investment program, which benefits students, teachers and parents of public schools serving students from low-income families in select United States school districts.
Under the new Start Proud! community investment program, Domtar partnered with Office Depot in five schools to bring paper and other school supplies directly to students and teachers in Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Rallies were held at each school to get students and teachers excited about the new school year. Bill Edwards, Domtar’s vice president of manufacturing, spoke to the students at one such rally at David Cox Road Elementary in Charlotte, North Carolina.
