MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Thanks to Martinsburg-area teens, the Boys & Girls Club of the Eastern Panhandle received a check for $6,050 on Oct. 28, at 4 p.m. at the Martinsburg Staples store, 246 Retail Commons Parkway. The presentation highlighted the effort from the Martinsburg community for students in need.

Staples presented the check to the Boys & Girls Club of the Eastern Panhandle for its students. Martinsburg teens helped raise one of the highest collective amounts in the country, all from raised money and donated school supplies, as part of the nationwide Staples for Students campaign. Teens were encouraged to collect school supplies and drop them off at their nearest drop-off location, from July 3 to Sept. 17, to ensure they got into the hands of thousands of children in time for school.

All supplies were donated locally to educational nonprofit organizations that serve disadvantaged youths.
