Brea-based Avery Dennison’s Office and Consumer Products Group has named the winners of the third annual “Avery Give Back to Schools” promotion, awarding school supplies valuing up to thousands of dollars to schools across the U.S.

Prizes were awarded to 30 schools through online voting along with 10 randomly selected schools. The top five schools that received the most online public votes will receive $10,000 in Avery School Supplies, 25,000 Bonus eBox Tops worth $2,500 and $1,000 in gift cards towards additional teacher supplies. The 25 runner-up schools will receive 10,000 Bonus eBox Tops (valued at $1,000). In addition, ten qualifying schools from the voting pool were randomly selected and received 5,000 eBox Tops (valued at $500).

The top five schools included Stone Elementary of Crossville, TN; Henry Elementary in Henry, VA; Discovery Key Elementary in Lake Worth, FL; Tyndall Elementary in Panama City, FL; and Walt Disney Elementary in San Ramon, CA. The 25 runner-up schools included three California schools, and the ten randomly selected schools included a representative Orange County institution:
Margaret Landell Elementary in Cypress.   

“For the third year in a row we are happy to be supporting and drawing attention to the needs of schools," said Tim Bond, Group Vice President of Office and Consumer Products for Avery Dennison. "We are excited to award 40 hard-working schools this year with these Avery school supplies and Bonus eBox Tops, and are pleased to have another chance to demonstrate our commitment to them.”
 
Avery is a leading manufacturer in providing printers, binders, sheet protectors, dividers, and many other office and school materials. The online program is Avery’s way of giving back to the community and making its company’s success possible.

The eBox Tops are provided by Green Giant’s Box Tops for Education program. The initiative, launched in 1996, has helped more than 90,000 schools raise up to $400 million through the box tops, which can be found on General Mills products including Cheerios, Bisquick, Betty Crocker and many other Green Giant licensed brands.
