Associate Emergency Financial Support

Over 4,000 associates donate to the Staples Share Fund. Because of our generous associates, the Staples Share Fund has helped over 1,600 associates in need with over $1.7 million in grants.

Grants support associates who need help with:

  • Household expenses while an associate or family member is recovering from an illness or accident
  • Funeral expenses for associates or immediate family members who have passed
  • Finding safety from domestic violence
  • Finding a home or assistance from eviction
  • Rebuilding after a natural disaster or house fire

Most importantly, these grants provide some relief and hope to those who need it the most.

Support in times of need

Overcoming damage

Overcoming damage by Hurricane Matthew

Staples associate Jane was trapped in her home with her children for over a week due to the flooding by Hurricane Matthew. Her car and home were severely damaged. A coworker applied for assistance on her behalf and a week later, Jane received a grant from the Staples Share Fund to help with food, repairs, and damage to her home.
