CompuCom Systems, an IT outsourcing specialist, announced that its campaign, "Supply the Mind, Put Students First," has led to the donation of approximately 225,000 individual-use school supplies from pencils and pens to art supplies and backpacks as donations for local schools.
"CompuCom believes that quality education is critical to the futures of both our community and our company," said Tim Shea, Senior VP, Human Resources and Corporate Development. "The success of our 'Supply the Mind' community program is a direct result of support and involvement. This is our kickoff year and we look forward to it becoming an annual campaign."
Throughout the summer, CompuCom said its associates raised funds through bake sales and raffles and brought donated school supplies to work. Collected items were donated to local school districts nearby each CompuCom office and included most of CompuCom's locations, including Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Tewksbury, MA; Bloomington, MN; Calgary, AB; Mississauga, ON; Scarborough, ON; and Montreal, QC.
