Infomax Annual School Supply Drive a Success!

With all the expenses that parents have to incur, we know that sometimes school supplies do not fit into their budget. The employees at Infomax Office Systems have an annual school supply drive to help the students at different schools in Iowa. Donations are received during the month of August, and Infomax contributes the various school supplies — including paper, folders, pencils, pens, pencil boxes, rulers, tape, erasers, highlighters and backpacks — to students who then benefit from always having the tools they need to succeed. Supplies were collected in both the Des Moines and Ottumwa offices, and this year were donated to George Washington Carver Elementary in Des Moines and Wilson Elementary in Ottumwa.

Write to Infomax for more information on how you can be our next school to receive donations!
