PostalAnnex+ Store Owners Give Free School Supplies to Local Children

Local business owners help children and parents prepare for a new school year.

July 26, 2012 // // SAN DIEGO, Calif.  - With summer vacation drawing to a close, it’s time for parents and children to get ready for a new school year. Back-to-school shopping is underway, and many children are picking out new backpacks, pencils, calculators, and other fun and colorful supplies.

At participating locations, for customers who mention this article, PostalAnnex+ store owners are giving away a free package of pens or pencils. “Children are the future of our country, and having the right supplies can really help a child succeed,” said Steve Goble, Vice President of Marketing Communications at Annex Brands, Inc, the franchisor for PostalAnnex+.

For families living in poverty, purchasing school supplies is difficult, and some children have to attend school without the necessary supplies. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP), nearly 15 million children in the United States live below the federal poverty level. The poverty level is $22,350 a year for a family of four, but families typically need about twice that to cover basic expenses.

In addition to supporting local school children, PostalAnnex+ locations are a one-stop support center for packaging, postal and office supply needs. To pick up school supplies, visit one of the participating PostalAnnex+ locations:
