The Staples in-store fundraiser, Give a Toonie Share a Dream, took place May 6 to 28 at all Staples stores across Canada, and helps support more than 42,000 individuals with an intellectual disability who participate in Special Olympics sport programs across more than 450 communities. 
"Our relationship with Special Olympics is one of the longest partnerships in the history of our company," said Mary Sagat, President of Staples Canada. "The program creates a sense of pride and community spirit within our company and with our customers and vendors as well. We know the value of teamwork, team spirit and physical activity and are delighted to see so many Canadians participate in Special Olympics and sport."
