TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 25, 2016) - Avery Products Canada has dedicated their resources to students across Canada through their #AveryGivesBack campaign launching this school season. 7,500 kits filled with Avery stationary supplies were packaged at Avery Canada's head office in Whitby, ON by dedicated employee volunteers with the support of The Michael "Pinball" Clemons Foundation (MPCF) and young change maker Hannah Alper.
"Avery Products Canada is pleased to be working with MPCF and Hannah Alper on this great program to give back to local schools and communities. At Avery we truly believe in caring and supporting each other so this program is a natural extension of what we do every day," says Lynn Livesey, General Manager of Avery Canada.
Deliveries were made between June 6th - June 29th to students across Canada including schools within MPCF networks. Aligned with MPCF founding principle of empowering youth and inspiring dreams, Avery Product Canada's #AveryGivesBack campaign is aiming to prepare students for the upcoming school year with the tools they need such as binders, dividers, highlights and tabs.
To celebrate these contributions, Michael "Pinball" Clemons and Hannah Alper captured their contribution of kitting and delivery of these kits through video to spread awareness of giving back to your communities through social media during the back to school season in hopes to inspire others. To further give back, Avery will be donating $1 for every video "share" up to $5,000 to the Michael "Pinball" Clemons Foundation.
Join the give back movement with Avery Products Canada at #AveryGivesBack. The videos will be available to view through Avery Products Canada's social channels and on July 25th at www.avery.ca.
