‘Truly remarkable’ Back to School Appeal


The combined efforts of generous customers and passionate and dedicated team members resulted in a record $2.2 million being contributed by Officeworks’ annual Back to School Appeal to support the important work of The Smith Family.

The outcome means 3,525 students will receive Learning for Life sponsorships for this school year providing financial, personal and practical support to help students make the most of their education.

The Smith Family’s CEO Lisa O’Brien said the result was truly remarkable.
“After what has been a difficult year for so many, the generosity of Australians donating to the campaign in droves has been both humbling and awe-inspiring,” Lisa said. “By joining forces with us, Officeworks, their team and their customers are helping to change the lives of so many young Australians in need. Together we are ensuring children have what they need at school and succeed to go on to brighter, better futures.”
