BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Office Depot, Inc. (ODP), a leading global provider of office products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax, in its ongoing support of education, is helping teachers stretch their funds by offering 20 percent off qualifying purchases during its Office Depot Rewards™ and MaxPerks® Teacher Appreciation Events.

To take full advantage of the great savings, teachers are encouraged to shop for their classrooms today through Sunday during the tax-free shopping weekend (August 1-3).

Based upon estimates from AdoptAClassroom.org, a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to teachers, teachers spend in upwards of $1,000 annually from their own pockets to purchase items for their classrooms.1

At Office Depot and OfficeMax, we continue to honor teachers by offering special deals and discounts to thousands of educators across Florida as part of the company’s signature Teacher Appreciation Events.

The events will be held at Office Depot and OfficeMax stores across the state during select weeks this summer. In Florida, they’ll be taking place August 2-5. To find more information on Teacher Appreciation Events, teachers can visit officedepot.com/teachers.
