Whatever your office needs, they’ll save you – but they’re also saving our athletes, too. For 16 years, The Supply Room has supported Special Olympics Virginia, donating more than $35,000 and also providing almost $200,000 of in-kind office supplies, furniture and promotional items.
"As we prepare for our Special Olympics athletes to return to a safe and healthy playing field, we are proud to do so with The Supply Room on our team,” said Rick Jeffrey, President of Special Olympics Virginia. “The Supply Room has been a longtime friend to the almost 23,000 athletes of Special Olympics Virginia. Whether its office supplies or technology solutions or volunteers or value in-kind, The Supply Room continues to help Special Olympics Virginia create an inclusive world for all, created by the power of sport.”
The Supply Room is a total business office source for office supplies, furniture and technology solutions. They deliver a huge variety of affordable name brand computer equipment, copy paper, printer ink, office desks and more. Located in Ashland, they not only serve Virginia but also Washington DC, North Carolina and Maryland.
And this year, they’re raising their partnership bar to a new level by joining alongside our Young Professionals Board (YPB) as volunteers, meeting hosts, promoting the opportunity to join the YPB to their employees, and also providing co-branded YPB “gear” to help build awareness. Future plans include having a member of The Supply Room join the YPB, whose primary goals are to raise the visibility of Special Olympics and build new programs through fundraising.
“The Supply Room is excited to expand our longstanding partnership with Special Olympics Virginia,” said Lauren Jones, President and CEO of The Supply Room. “We are committed to making a difference in the communities that we serve and helping develop the next generation of leaders in Virginia. Our entire organization is proud of the work that Special Olympics Virginia has accomplished over the years and we cannot wait to support the growth and determination of the athletes as they prepare to return to the fields.”
We are committed to making a difference in the communities that we serve and helping develop the next generation of leaders in Virginia.
