Tony Stewart and Office Depot Foundation Donate 5000 Sackpacks of School Supplies in Indiana

Posted by Amy in General | NASCAR

When I was in grammar school I loved school supply shopping. It was probably my favorite thing to do…sure I liked school (except for that pesky math stuff) and did well it in but I LOVED getting my supplies. Hated the clothes shopping part- but LOVED the school supply shopping. LOVED IT! Which makes sense since I LOVE office supplies now that I am an adult…but I digress.

Tony Stewart spent time of Thursday at the Office Depot in Carmel, Indiana helping the Office Depot Foundation by giving the gift of 5000 sackpack filled with essential school supplies to local area youth before sitting down for a public autograph session with his fans. The sackpacks were divided up amongst several local Indiana charities including (but not limited to because there was a HUGE list of non-profits) Carmel Clay Schools, Indianapolis Public Schools, Indianapolis Urban League, Happy Hollow Children’s Camp, School on Wheels, Teachers™ Treasures/Kids In Need Foundation, and the list goes on and on.

Sure Office Depot is his primary sponsor but I think he really likes to do it…why do I think that? Because I remember when we interviewed Tony the first time, one of our questions was about the work his foundation does with children and animals it was obvious because while he was giving us his answer- his entire countenance brightened. One of these days I would love to attend one of the giveaway events to witness it in person. But for now…enjoy these pictures:

Seriously you have to click on the above picture to make it bigger so you can see her expression she is SOOO excited (and absolutely adorable)! She likes school supplies too.

AWWW! I think that is the same little girl from the top picture that was uber excited.  I would have loved to been able to eavesdrop on this conversation!  If that doesn’t warm your heart then there might just be no hope for you…or you might be on of those “that guy” Stewart haters I was talking about.
