Tony Stewart and Mom Receive Honor

Posted by Amy in General

The Office Depot Foundation has awarded Tony Stewart and his mother Pam Boas with the organization’s “Listen Learn Care” award. It is the Office Depot Foundation’s highest honor. This award honors people who have been exceptionally creative and innovative in following their dreams and in helping others to realize their goals and aspirations.

Tony Stewart  and Pam Boas have worked with the Office Depot Foundation’s National Backpack Program which provides backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need.  Last summer Stewart helped the National Backpack Program donate it’s 2 millionth backpack during several appearances where he personally presented students with the backpacks.  Stewart’s mother also helped distribute over 5,000 backpacks to groups supported by the Tony Stewart Foundation, for which his mother is a board member.  They are awarded this honor not just because of their work with the National Backpack program but also because of all of the charitable work done through the Tony Stewart Foundation.

It’s a great honor to receive the Office Depot Foundation’s “Listen Learn Care Award” especially alongside my mom,” Stewart said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to accomplish my dream of driving race cars for a living, and my mom always supported me in that goal. It means a lot to both of us to be able to give back and help others, especially kids, as they work hard toward achieving their dreams, too.”

    Congrats to Tony and his mom. Tony has always been known for his charity work. Underneath the tough racer is a heart of gold.

    It is cool what Office Depot does with the backpacks. You would be surprised what new school supplies can do for a child who otherwise would be without.

    Thanks Tony and Pam!
