Collect school supplies for the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe

Staples and Dosomething.org are teaming up with actress Nikki Reed for the third annual National Staples/Do Something 101 School Supply Drive.

As part of Do Something 101, Reed, star of “Twilight: Eclipse,” is encouraging South Lake Tahoe teens to make a difference this summer by collecting school supplies and dropping them off at their local Staples store through Sept. 18. In addition, Staples customers can get involved by donating $1 at any Staples store with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting South Lake Tahoe students in need.

All school supplies and donations will be given locally to the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe to ensure they get into the hands of disadvantaged youth in time for the new school year.

The local Staples store for supply drop off is located at 2061 Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

“Do Something 101 has done an amazing job in its first two years, and I’m excited to make the 2010 campaign the best yet,” Reed said. “Every donated pencil, notebook and other supplies can add up to make a big difference in improving education.”

South Lake Tahoe teens who want to get involved can go to http://www.dosomething101.org for ideas on how to run local school supply drives and to sign up for an action kit.
