About the National Backpack Program:
In the 14th year of its award-winning National Backpack Program, the Office Depot Foundation is donating 350,000 school sackpacks in seven brand new, colorful designs this year to help children around the world succeed in school.
By the end of this year, Office Depot and the Office Depot Foundation will have donated more than 3.3 million backpacks and sackpacks to deserving children. The sackpacks, which have been completely reimagined for 2014, feature seven kid-friendly designs – two for boys, two for girls and three that are unisex. Each sackpack holds a zippered pouch containing essential school supplies – a pen, a pencil, four crayons, a pencil sharpener, an eraser and a 6-inch ruler.
The sackpacks do not carry any Office Depot or Office Depot Foundation branding or logos.
The specially designed sackpacks are manufactured exclusively for the Foundation. Highly contemporary in their design, they reflect and respond to changes in the ways that children are taking their materials to school. Made from the same sturdy material as backpacks, they are water-resistant and lined to provide extra protection for their contents. They feature strong ropes and have no metal parts.
