Staples Stylish Fall School Supplies

Back to School

MBE partnered with Staples for this story

Trendy Back to Student School Supplies

Isn't it hard to believe it's back-to-school time? With BTS shopping on a lot of parents' minds, I could not be more excited to share with you what's new in affordable, functional and stylish school supplies at Staples to help maximize the chances your sons and daughters will have a successful academic year. In fact, in places like Arizona, school kids and college students are already heading back to classes, with the majority of America's cities and towns following suit later the month and into September.

But all the great new and returning trendy and functional products you'll find in this national school and office supply chain's stores, aren't the whole story. During Staples celebrity-studded, roll-out event in Los Angeles taped exclusively for Celebrity Page TV (scheduled to air August 13), Staples proved it doesn't just care about customers.

Staples Gives Back to Community

Staples also has a deep community concern for teachers, especially those serving students from struggling families who can't easily afford the school items needed to succeed in the year ahead. With the brand's Katy Perry testimonial video playing on the big screen, host Megan Telles of Celebrity Page TV, actress Lori Loughlin of Full House and Fuller House, and athlete/actress/author Gabrielle Reece, were all on hand live in Los Angeles, California to make a surprise announcement. 

The big news is that Staples has earmarked more than $131,000 of  their $1 million donation to Donors Choose, a charity funding more than 700,000 classroom projects. The Staples major contribution benefits 15,500 students in classrooms at 97 local schools in L.A. this academic year. This includes funding the balance of every local arts and music program, college and career prep project, as well as middle school and high school literacy projects listed on in L.A.

Don't forget to tune in on August 13th to Celebrity Page TV to see the entire televised event. Not only will this get you into a true back-to-school state of mind for your own family, you'll also be moved to see the ways Staples is making a difference in kids' lives across the economic spectrum this school year.

Back to School Teacher DIY Gift Idea

Take some inspiration from these fun and easy DIY fresh flower arrangements on display at the #StaplesLive event to design your child's teacher a beautifully presented gift of school supplies to welcome her or him back to school.

Except for the fresh flowers in each of these arrangements (you can also use silk flowers), all the items needed to make these are available at Staples right now. Go ahead, get creative and give teachers what they want and need most this fall!
