Stock Up and Give Back During Back-To-School


CHICAGO, July 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This summer, Boise Paper is reminding back-to-school shoppers to keep their teachers and classrooms in mind while they stock up on school supplies. According to data from the National Teacher and Principal Survey, teachers spend an average of almost $500 per year on classroom supplies. Consider helping your student's teacher start the school year off right by purchasing an extra ream of paper or case of pens for their classroom.

For an added bonus, look for items featuring Box Tops! Boise Paper is the exclusive paper partner of Box Tops for Education, a leading program that helps America's schools get what they need. All Boise POLARIS® Premium paper reams have Box Tops, and the limited edition back-to-school Boise® X-9® Multi-Use Copy paper reams – which feature double Box Tops – are only available in Office Depot and OfficeMax stores while supplies last.

In addition, you can earn Bonus Box Tops through the Box Tops Bonus App by purchasing participating products, which are listed on the App, and uploading your receipts. Once the receipt is processed, you'll be able to view the credits you've earned for your school on the "My Activity" tab in the App or by visiting "My School Earnings" online. Throughout July, August, and September, earn Bonus Box Tops through the App when purchasing reams of 24 lb Boise POLARIS Premium Multipurpose paper at Office Depot and OfficeMax retail stores.

"At Boise Paper, our continued partnership with General Mills' Box Tops for Education program is a huge source of pride because it directly benefits the communities where our customers and employees live and work," said Paul LeBlanc, vice president of Boise Paper. "In the spirit of giving back, we encourage back-to-school shoppers to think about how they can help their teachers and classrooms when stocking up on school supplies."

Since 2011, Boise Paper has contributed more than $11 million through the Box Tops for Education program to help local schools around the country get the supplies they need. Over 70,000 K-8 schools actively participate in the Box Tops for Education program every year, and since it began in 1996, America's schools have earned more than $882 million.
