For the last three years Brea-based Avery Dennison Office and Consumer Products has helped support U.S. schools with its Avery Give Back to Schools promotion. The online voting competition awards schools with the supplies and cash prizes. This year, Avery has expanded the number of eligible winners from 30 to 40 different schools across America.
“We’re excited to expand the offerings of our Avery Give Back to Schools promotion to schools and communities across the country that have continually supported us, especially during times when school budgets are constrained and so many students and educators are in greater need,” said Tim Bond, group vice president of Avery Dennison Office and Consumer Products.
Avery manufactures school stationery products, including binders, dividers, Sticky Notes, NoteTabs, Hi-Liter markers and glue sticks, as well as office supplies. The Avery Give Back to Schools promotion is a partnership with the Box Tops for Education program, which is a nationwide fundraising initiative that places coupons on select products. These so called “box top coupons” then count as cash when turned in at schools.
The Avery Give Back to Schools promotion will be running until September 14. The top five voted schools will win $10,000 worth of Avery supplies, 25,000 Box Tops (redeemable for $2,500 cash) and $1,000 in gift cards that teachers can use the for classroom supplies.
The next 25 schools, in order of votes, will receive 10,000 Box Tops (redeemable for $1,000 cash). And the final 10 schools with 100 votes or more will be selected at random to win $500 worth of Box Tops.
