AVERY DENNISON JOINS BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION® TO HELP EARN CASH FOR SCHOOLS
The first school and office supply manufacturer to join the program, Avery Dennison wants to help make a difference in children’s education
Brea, Calif. – June 8, 2009 – Avery Dennison Office Products today announced its participation in Box Tops for Education®, a program that helps consumers raise valuable and necessary funds for participating schools.

These coupons can be clipped and submitted to participating schools, then redeemed for cash.
The cash earned by schools through the program can be used in many ways, such as helping to rebuild playgrounds, funding under-budgeted programs, or purchasing classroom equipment, library books, computers and other much-needed supplies.
“Avery Dennison is in the business of developing products that make people’s lives simpler, easier and better-organized, for students and professionals alike,” said Jeff deLeon, group product manager, Avery Dennison Office Products. “We are constantly striving to identify ways we can add value to our products. Partnering with Box Tops for Education not only accomplishes this, but it is also a natural extension of our Company’s value of supporting the community. We want to provide parents with an easy way to raise money for their children’s schools while purchasing their office and school supplies.”
