Today, more than 16 million kids live in poverty and come to school without the necessary tools to learn and succeed in the classroom. And, we know that when students have the supplies they need, classroom behavior & grades improve, self-esteem strengthens, and kids develop better attitudes toward learning.
ACCO Brands and our portfolio brands like Mead®, Five Star®, and Cambridge® have long understood that giving back is more than just good business; it’s the right thing to do! In the last five years, together we have gone from helping 1.6 million kids in 2010 to 4.8 million in 2015 – tripling the number of kids we helped during that period!
ACCO Brands is proud to join the Kids In Need Foundation for #GivingTuesday. On this global day of giving, families, businesses and committed individuals come together to celebrate and encourage giving back. We ask you to join this movement to ensure all students have access to quality school supplies. Thank you.
When families struggle financially each month, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2016, we directly supported 5.4 million kids with new supplies.
