Selena Gomez Goes Back to School for OfficeMax's 'A Day Made Better' Event
The Los Angeles event was held to shed light on the fact that teachers in America spend about $1,000 of their own money for school supplies. With this in mind, OfficeMax associates and participating celebs surprised winning teachers with a box of supplies, including a printer, digital camera and other essential classroom materials. One thousand deserving teachers were presented with the boxes of supplies worth over $1,000 each.
"Teachers inspire and shape our country's greatest asset, our children, and it is astounding that they are left to cover the cost of doing a good job," said Bob Thacker, SVP of marketing and advertising for OfficeMax. "We hope today's surprise events will generate a grassroots movement in support of teachers and demonstrate how easy it is to make a difference in your own community."
