GRAFTON, Mass. — The South Grafton Parent Teacher Organization was awarded a $5,000 grant from Staples, the office supply chain, to fund school field trips and other enrichment programs in Grafton Public Schools.
The money comes from a new charitable initiative at Staples called 2 Million and Change, which allows Staples employees to direct funding to nonprofit organizations that are focused on education or job skills.
“The Staples Foundation is committed to making a positive impact in the communities where our associates live and work,” Katy Dobbs, director of global community relations for Staples, said in a statement.
The South Grafton PTO has previously used donations from different sources to pay for grade school trips to the Southwick Zoo Mobile, New England Aquarium Tidal Pool Adaptations and Stowe Farm as well as a visit by author Carol Weis.
