If you need a printer or are considering upgrading your printer, I implore you to consider taking part in the “Buy A Printer, Support Military Families” campaign being hosted by Office Depot. The program is in conjunction with the Memorial Day Coca-Cola 600 and is quite simple…buy a Lexmark printer in an Office Depot Store or online between May 30th and June 5th. For each printer purchased Office Depot and Lexmark will donate a printer to Operation Homefront. They are hoping to donate 4,000 printers.
For those unfamiliar with Operation Homefront- they provide emergency assistance for troops, the families they leave behind and for wounded warriors when they return home. They have more than 4,500 volunteers across 23 chapters and have been rated a 4-star charity by Charity navigator. Ninty-five cent of every dollar donated to Operation Homefront goes to fund programs.
To kick off the program- Tony Stewart’s #14 Office Depot chevy will be running a special TV Panel at the Coca-Cola 600 race on May 30th:
It’s a great way to support the military and their families!
“I am very grateful to the men and women who serve our country, and that includes all of the military families who sacrifice time with their loved ones,” Stewart said. “They make it possible for people like me to do what I love and for fans to enjoy being at the race track every weekend. For any NASCAR fan who needs a new printer, now is the time to visit your local Office Depot store. Your purchase of a Lexmark printer will directly benefit a military family, and that is a great gift.”
As part of the Office Depot and Lexmark program, people can also engage with Operation Homefront and support members of the military via Twitter. Beginning now through June 5, people can give a “Shout Out” to someone serving in the military and be entered for a chance to win one of 10 Lexmark printers. To participate, go to Twitter (www.Twitter.com) and tweet the name and rank of a loved one in the military, along with the hashtag: #OperationShoutOut, from your Twitter account.
Also- consider joining the Office Depot facebook team. Tony wants to rev up their following on facebook in a BIG way…14,000 ways to be exact.
