OfficeMax to Surprise These Hawaii Schools with Gifts

…Educators nationwide will now wait in anticipation to see if they have been selected for a surprise visit from their local OfficeMax as the company distributes approximately $1.5 million worth of classroom supplies in surprise school visits throughout the day…

…The surprise in-school ceremonies are part of the office supply retailer’s campaign to eliminate teacher-funded classrooms, especially during this time of extra economic burden on school districts across the nation. According to national studies conducted by the National Education Association, teachers spend nearly $1,200 out of their own pockets each year for basic classroom supplies — adding up, nationally, to about $4 billion a year.
