Staples awards $3,500 to JA

TERRE HAUTE — Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples Inc., has awarded $3,500 to Junior Achievement of the Wabash Valley Inc., under “2 Million and Change,” a program that lets Staples associates direct donations.

Junior Achievement will use the grant funds to provide economic education programs for classrooms in Vigo County elementary schools. Volunteer business leaders from the community are trained and provided with materials to conduct these JA programs, helping young people to better understand economic concepts in order to become successful in the workplace and in life.

The grants are part of a philanthropic initiative created by Staples Foundation which allows Staples associates around the world to direct funding to nonprofit organizations that are focused on education or job skills. The program encourages local community engagement by awarding larger grants to organizations where associates are highly engaged in volunteering or fundraising, up to $25,000 per organization.
