'Pretty Little Liars' Cast Helps Raise $810K in School Supplies
The cast of 'Pretty Little Liars' teamed up with Staples and Do Something earlier this year for the fourth annual Staples for Students campaign, and they've officially raised $810,000 in supplies for the cause -- the most ever in campaign history!
All summer long, Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, and Shay Mitchell have been supporting campaign efforts, and even appeared at the Staples for Students event at the Globe Theater in Los Angeles affter the 2011 Teen Choice Awards.
The girls joined teen volunteers to fill hundreds of backpacks with school supplies for Boys & Girls Club members in L.A. "I was so honored not just to host the event in Los Angeles, but to also be one of the spokespeople for this year's campaign," Ashley said. "I am truly inspired by the teens who came out to do something to help kids in their communities."
In the past, 'Twilight' star Nikki Reed has been a spokesperson for the campaign, which helps students get the back-to-school supplies they need. This year, a special effort was made to help the victims of the devastating tornadoes in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Joplin, Mo. and Springfield, Mass., ensuring that students had all the supplies they needed to head back to school.
We're so proud of Lucy, Troian, Ashley and Shay! Great job, girls!
