Staples in Mansfield Township recently donated 419 $5 care packages to the Arc of Warren County, equaling $2,095 in supplies gifted to the agency. The care packages were donated to the agency’s Day Program and Recreation departments through its Care Packages Program.
“We are grateful to Staples Mansfield for continuing to be such a generous community partner throughout the years,” Annamaria Lalevee, chief development and communications officer at the Arc of Warren County, said. “I would like to thank Staples and General Manager Bill Ritacco for choosing the Arc of Warren County as a recipient for their Care Packages Program, and to their customers for making this gift a reality.”
Ritacco added that this donation could only be secured because of the support of the community-at-large.
“It is a pleasure being able to help a great organization like the Arc of Warren County,” Ritacco said. “I would like to thank our patrons for helping make this donation possible.”
