Staples, Samsung support disadvantaged youth

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. Staples has partnered with Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope on the launch of a cause marketing program to benefit Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The companies will raise funds for programs that provide support for disadvantaged youth.

Now through Oct. 31, Staples and Samsung will donate $5, up to $50,000, from all Samsung printers sold at Staples stores nationwide and at Staples.com to the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. In addition, throughout the month of October, customers can support both organizations by donating $2 at checkout when shopping at Staples.

“Staples is working with Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope and Arnold Palmer to raise money and awareness for two important causes that create positive change in the community,” said Staples senior vp of technology merchandise Peter Scala. “This program will enable our customers to ensure youth served by Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of America receive the support needed to succeed.”

“Mr. Palmer’s dedication to children and commitment to their success is truly admirable,” said Samsung president and ceo D.J. Oh. “We are very excited to unite with Staples to support Mr. Palmer and his charitable work that is making a positive impact in the lives of the nation’s youth.”

At the conclusion of the promotion, Samsung and Staples will host a celebration event with Arnold Palmer at his Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, where both charities will be presented with the donated funds. Youth from the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Boys & Girls Clubs of Orlando will also have the opportunity to receive golf tips and putt alongside Palmer.

Arnold Palmer’s charities have been a major benefactor of Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope. Since its inception in 2002, the program has raised more than $12 million to benefit children, families and communities in need.
