A Day Made Better from OfficeMax – We Surprised a Teacher with $1000 in School Supplies

Day Made Better Giveaway



Since my children started school, one of things that I became very aware of is the fact that many classrooms are teacher funded. Some more so than others. As a parent, I have tried every single year with all three teachers to bring whatever supplies they need during the year rather than them going out and buying supplies.

But the fact is that teachers want to do more in their classrooms and they could do more with the supplies they need but sometimes just cannot get. OfficeMax has been working for years to help teachers out and I am thrilled once again to be a part of the A Day Made Better program.



To the average American teacher, “back to school” means spending approximately $1,000 out of their own pocket for essential classroom supplies. OfficeMax founded A Day Made Better to help ease the financial burden on teachers and recognize their extraordinary efforts in the classroom. On October 1, OfficeMax associates around the country will surprise 1,000 teachers with a total of $1 million worth of school supplies. Since 2007, A Day Made Better and other OfficeMax Goodworks programs have contributed more than $25 million in grants and supplies to support more than 31,000 teachers and their classrooms. Additionally, through the annual event, OfficeMax has helped its nonprofit partner AdoptAClassroom.org secure funding for more than 100,000 classrooms nationwide. Learn more at adaymadebetter.com.

OfficeMax A Day Made Better Box and ChairThis year they provided me with an exclusive opportunity to make a difference in my community by surprising a deserving teacher on behalf of the A Day Made Better cause. I was sent one A Day Made Better box filled with classroom supplies worth $1,000 with a mission to surprise a local teacher on Oct. 1. The box included items such as a Kindle Fire, swivel chair, digital camera, labeler and essential supplies from sticky notes to paper, pencils, markers and more!

This is our third year participating and I am thrilled to be a part of this program once again. Words cannot express how fun it was to help a teacher out with $1000 in school supplies. I literally cried as I walked away because I was so overwhelmed.

OfficeMax does so many good things for teachers in our community, how could we not shop there? We frequently go into our local store and have been shopping there ever since I learned about this program.

OfficeMax is also generously offering one lucky reader of The Divine Miss Mommy one (1) $100 OfficeMax gift card to give away. They would love for you to join in the cause by surprising a teacher in your community.

  1. I would give the supplies to my kids Kindergarten and 2nd grade teachers, and they could use notebooks, folders, pencils, crayons and markers.

  2. Heather Hayes Panjon says:

    My Daughters 3rd Grade Teacher Mrs, Sullivan, They Could Use, Paper, Pencils, A Pencil Sharpener, A Printer,Snacks

  3. D SCHMIDT says:

    I would give them to my older son’s teacher, she is always paying for paper, card and pens herself.

  4. D SCHMIDT says:

    I think I could give back with my time in the classroom

  5. Cynthia R says:

    i would give this to my friend with three young children, she’s a widow and I think things have been so tough in a lot of ways.

  6. steve weber says:

    I would give the supplies to my nephew’s 1st grade teacher.. they could use paper, ink, crayons, markers, paints, etc

  7. steve weber says:

    I could give my time with a show-and-tell presentation or something else that’s really exciting.

  8. Jessie C. says:

    I would volunteer to help classrooms.

  9. Jessie C. says:

    I would give markers, crayons, papers, pencils and erasers to DD’s teacher and classroom.

  10. kristin h says:

    I would give to my child’s school – any teacher in that school deserves it – They could use markers, crayons, tissues, paper towels, construction paper – any supplies they could use

  11. That is absolutely amazing. I volunteer in the schools quite often and I can only begin to imagine how much that teacher appreciated the stuff. Teachers spend so much of their own time and money on their students, that it’s nice to be able to give back.
    Robin (Masshole Mommy)´s last blog post ..Karate Belt Promotions

  12. would give the school supplies to a teacher or neighborhood children such as paper, glue and markers

  13. This is awesome! I want to do this for my kid’s school! I hope I win! I want to give the gift card to my son’s 4th grade teacher! They have to do so much more as 4th graders, but with the same classroom budget. She could really use this for all the book report projects the kids have to do this year.
    Amber Edwards´s last blog post ..Perfect Spicy Steak Recipe, Steakhouse flavor without the cost!

  14. I could give back by volunteering for any of their projects

  15. I would give it to my son’s teacher and she could use crayons, glue sticks, paper, colored paper, stencils, anti-bacterial gel for hands, and wipes for the desks and things. :)

    What a fun post, it sounds like you had a great time too.

  16. This is such an awesome program! As a former high school teacher, you wouldn’t believe how many times my husband and I decided not to indulge in a date night because we felt like we needed to buy supplies for “my kids.” I worked in a relatively low-income school where many of my students came to class without basic supplies not because their parents didn’t feel like bringing them to the store, but because they really couldn’t afford such items. There’s such a misconception out there that teachers invest their money in buying “extras” for their students, but in many situations, they have to use their own limited funds to pay for the essentials. I applaud you for being a part of this campaign!

  17. That is great, teachers work very hard and spend a lot of their own money on supplies for their class rooms, at least where I live. Glad Office Max is doing something great like this.

  30. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    Kudos to Office Max for initiating this wonderful program. There will be some very grateful teachers out there who receive badly needed supplies.

  31. As a former teacher I can attest to the fact that we spend a lot of our own resources on supplies. What a wonderful thing for you and Office Max to do!

  32. This is a wonderful thing to do! That is a lot of wonderful school supplies!

  35. I’m almost teary eyed. We have so many close friends who are teachers, and I am in my kids’ school classrooms regularly- helping, supporting, etc. and I know how much they spend. I would be over the moon to give $1000 in supplies to a teacher myself!! It would be hard to figure out who to give it to, but I’m sure I could work it out.

    Amazing campaign, awesome for you, and kudos to Office Max for thinking of it.

    I would give the school supplies to my kid’s school and let them determine which teacher(s) had the most need. I think one thing they could use more of is folders, paper towels, and dry erase markers.

  51. What an amazing giveaway for a deserving teacher. As an educator, I can’t even begin to tell you how much of my personal finances go into purchasing materials for my classroom and my students. I love that Office Depot did this.

  60. The Tweet for this giveaway is about AMEX and not Office Max. Just wanted to mention that!

  61. what a great idea – i’d probably help supply to a school back home – a high percentage of low income students who could use some help with paper and other basics

  73. Stephanie Ann says:

    i’d give this to my sister who is an elementary school teacher! to buy markers, crayons, pencils, pens, anything she needs

  74. To my daughter’s preschool co-op. They can always use paint, paper, glue.

  75. i would give the school supplies to my son’s teacher

  76. another way to give back is wih your time

  77. Tom Bellamy says:

    I would give them to my granddaughter. She needs pencils, notebooks, crayons, glue, etc.

  78. Adrienne Gordon says:

    to my kids, they need paper and pencils all the time.

  79. Scott Martin says:

    I would give them to my son’s school. His class could use them.

  80. Jessica M. says:

    I would give them to my Aunt, she has been a teacher for the longest time! I’ve never asked her what supplies she could use, but I imagine any that she could get for her students. Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. Jessica M. says:

    Another way to give back to the classroom if you don’t have money is to tutor or help a child with their homework for free!

  82. Julie Hutson says:

    I would give this to my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher. We live in a very low income area and although help is requested, the teacher is almost buying everything herself. I try to help out as much as I can. I bring snacks for the entire class every month, I buy books for the classroom, extra classroom supplies such as tissue, hand sanitizer, etc. It seems as though the other parents are unable to contribute, so I like to help as much as possible. They always need more crayons, erasers, pencils, paper, art supplies, books, flash cards, and teaching aids. This would be a fantastic surprise for the class and teacher!

  83. Julie Hutson says:

    I like to help out in any way that I can for both schools my children attend. I enjoy being a guest reader for the kindergarten class. I can help the teacher’s to pass out snacks, organize supplies, pass out papers, make copies, write notes and reminders, help to clean up, volunteer for special events, such as help kids pick out books at book fairs, in the cafeteria, Grandparent’s Day breakfast, etc. Helping makes me feel like I am contributing to my children’s education and when they feel like I am more involved, they tend to do better in school.

  84. Lisa Brown says:

    I would give them to our intermediate school; I would give them paper, pencils, tape, anything needed for projects.

  85. Lisa Brown says:

    i would give time to help out in the class and for after school needs.

  86. Nicole Larsen says:

    I would give them to my daughter’s kindergarten teacher. She could use paper, pencils, markers, scissors, and colored pencils

  90. I can give back to my grandson’s classroom by volunteering and helping when I can.

  91. Shannon Baas says:

    I would give to my nephew’s school. They can use lots of basic supplies.

  92. Stephanie V. says:

    my son’s first grade class and honestly – they could use everything! Just not enough money in CA schools and the children are the ones who are suffering.

  93. Stephanie V. says:

    volunteering – which I just did today!

  95. soha molina says:

  96. Mary Casper says:

    to my best friends children and they could use paper scissors crayons and notebooks

  97. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I would give them to my niece who just started college, probably things like pens, pencils, notebooks, folders.

  98. Cynthia Gray says:

    Bertram elem. could use any supplies I can get to help kids who are in need.

  99. Tanya White says:

    I have 5 school ages children so I would give it to them, they can use pencils, papers, pens, folders, crayons and so much more.

  100. Debra Holloway says:

    I would keep them for myself and my husband as we are both in college and could use printer ink, paper, pens, tablets, and so forth.

  101. I was the director of a daycare for 10 years, so I know how important it is to start young children out in the right direction. I would give a local daycare down the street from where I live this wonderful gift.

  102. Many times at the daycare I was in charge of we would have parents spend some free time helping when we went on field trips. You always need an extra pair of eyes and hands in these situations!!

  103. cassandra martz says:

    I’d probably give it to my sons teacher.

  104. Mary Happymommy says:

    I would give them to my friend who is a teacher.

  105. Mary Happymommy says:

    Another way to help a classroom is to volunteer your time.

  106. Cynthia C says:

    I would give supplies to my friend who is a teacher.

  107. Cynthia C says:

    Volunteering is a good way to help.

  108. julie murphy says:

    they always need paper pencils and glue

  109. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I would give them to my friend who is a first grade teacher and I think she would buy markers and gluesticks.

  110. Two of my best friends are teachers – kindergarten and 3rd grade. I would see what needs they had for their classrooms.

    Spruce Elementary. They are a special Elementary school and they could use all the help they could get.

  114. Scott Martin says:

    I would give them to my sister

  115. Chris Martinez says:

    I’d leave the supplies to my daughter’s teacher. Second grade. She is so passionate about teaching and I know she purchases most of her own supplies.

  116. Betsy Barnes says:

    I would give them to my good friend who is an English teacher :)

  117. Thomas Murphy says:

    I would give it to my kids school and I think they could use everything.

  118. I would give it to the school where my niece works…it’s in a low-income neighborhood, and they go without A LOT there, and face a lot of challenges. They could use just the most basic necessities, like pencils and crayons and paper and erasers, and so on.

  119. Betsy Barnes says:

    When my son was in school. I used to ask his teachers what kind of things they needed, then send in a bag of supplies twice a year to help out. I’d use coupons and sales so it won’t cost a lot :)

  120. Terry Cross says:

    I would give the supplies to my grandsons’ teachers. Not really sure what they could use. I’d have to ask.

  121. I would buy school supplies to help fill up 120 boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Many of these children cannot go to school if they do not have school supplies and are often so poor that they cannot afford them. I would get lots of the basics like pens, pencils, and notebooks.

  122. Terry Cross says:

    Volunteering as needed is a great way to help out

  123. Terri Herman says:

    I would give the school supplies to my nephew’s middle school. It seems that middle schools are overlooked when it comes to donations. They could probably use paper, pencils and some specialty items as well.

  124. Terri Herman says:

    I should volunteer more. I have afternoons free and with my own children grown, I should give time back!

  125. I would give this to my local Elementary school. I am sure they could use it all!!

  126. Jessica S says:

    I would like to give it to my boyfriend’s mother who teaches children with special needs. She is always buying things out of her own pocket so it would be such a great surprise for her.

  127. Jessica S says:

    I think I could give back by volunteering to be a mentor for a local school.

  128. Always need more paper!

  129. Heather S says:

    helping the teachers out in the classroom

  130. Heather S says:

    my nephews class needs paper and pencils

    my husband’s classroom

  132. I would use the supplies for my homeschooling children and home business!

  133. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    My little brother and sister would use this for writing supplies for school.

  134. Beanybopp says:

    I would give it to my elementary school where my sister goes…I know that they could always use things since I know the little kids tend to lose or break things like crayons, pencils, etc

  135. Beanybopp says:

    I know that it isnt much but I collect the box tops to give to my little sister to take in to school. I could also start donating things like paper and all to them.

  136. I would give this to my son’s teacher and they need markers, glue, and highlighters most.

  137. linda lightner says:

    i would give to my church teachers. we use and need supplies all the time. The leader will pay out of pocket for things as do other teachers and we shouldn’t have to.

  138. mickeyfan says:

    My late mother was a teacher. I’d be thrilled to give this to one of her former co-workers and just tell her to go wild and get whatever she needs for her classroom!

  139. Sarah Oswald says:

    They have a program where you buy school supplies and they try to stuff a school bus with school supplies and each year they stuff it higher and higher. I always buy school stuff that is on sale throughout the year and when they have it in August I take it up there and put it in the bus. They give it out to kids that can’t afford those things and I was one of those kids when I was living at home.

  140. The Christian school where my boys take band. They could use all kinds of supplies.
