Staples Foundation for Learning Awards Nearly $300,000 in Grants to Support Educational Programs for Disadvantaged Youth:

"FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Staples Foundation for Learning (SFFL), a private foundation created by Staples, Inc., (NASDAQ: SPLS) announced today it has awarded 29 grants totaling $287,875 to non-profit organizations dedicated to helping youth throughout the country.
