Office Depot offers free school supplies

With summer vacation getting shorter these days parents, teachers and children need to start thinking now about getting ready for school and buying back-to-school supplies. Before people pack their bags for the summer they can purchase the school supplies they need and provide their schools with free supplies at the same time.

Office Depot is sponsoring a “Free Supplies for Your School” program nationwide and the store at 1043 Emerald Bay Road is participating. Customers shopping at the South Lake Tahoe Office Depot from July 22 through Sept. 30 for supplies for kindergarten through 12th grade can select their school identification number upon checking out to ensure their qualifying purchases are credited to the school of their choice. School ID numbers can be found through a special kiosk in the store.

Office Depot will track and total all qualifying in-store purchases. In November, once total qualifying credits are tallied, schools will receive a supply credit equal to 5 percent of their schools’ qualifying school supply purchase. These may be redeemed for thousands of products. Computers, digital assistants, associated technology and furniture items are not included in the program. A complete list of qualifying products is available at the South Lake Tahoe store.

Credits are valid for redemption by schools all the way through May 31, 2002. Participation in the “Free Supplies for Your School” program is limited to schools that generate a credit of $10 or more during the program dates and any uncollected funds will be retained by Office Depot.
