A Day Made Better for teachers across the country

Today, Tuesday, October 5th, OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom celebrated ‘A Day Made Better’ by surprising over 1,000 very deserving teachers across the United States each with $1,000 worth of school supplies. The pictures, videos, and thank you notes are rolling in, and here are a few we can share with you already:
