Charity for Children
Office Depot in Europe has set up its
own foundation, under the name "Office Depot Charity For Children", which is
aimed at providing financial and/or material support for charities and projects for
children throughout Europe.
Office Depot is proud of its long term
commitment to making the world a better place to live through implementing socially
responsible policies in all the communities in which it is active.
Since its foundation in Europe in
1990, Office Depot/Viking has supported various charities each year. Last year, for
example, it financed projects for UNICEF, War child, Ronald McDonald, Red Cross and BBC
Children in Need among others. In addition, Office Depot supports many associations and
organisations with gifts and product sponsoring. Office Depot donates more than 10 million USD annually to various institutions worldwide.
Office Depot Charity for Children will
organise various events every year to collect money for local, national and international
charities. In addition the fund will be supplemented by Office Depot.
Office Depot strongly believes in
giving back to the communities in which we live and work by supporting our future:
Children. Our mission is simple ... contribute to the quality of our children's lives,
their education, their health and their welfare.
Office Depot has provided support to
various people and organizations in need following a natural disaster. In the case of a
calamity, money has been raised by employees to help the people of the affected region,
and this has been doubled by the company.
Furthermore Office Depot contributes
to a major cartridge recycling program. Our operations provide bags for customers to
recycle their empty inkjet cartridges and this helps to raise money for charities such as
Kinderhulp, Deutschen Kinderschutzbund and Tommy's. This valuable cause gives us the
opportunity to fulfil both our environmental and charitable commitments.
