'Get Your Pin On!': Office Depot Stores Nationwide To Carry Official NASCAR Day Pin

Fans Can Now Get Their NASCAR Day Pin At More Than 1,100 Office Depot Stores

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 28, 2010) -- NASCAR fans can now head to their local Office Depot, the Official Office Products Partner of NASCAR and co-primary sponsor of Tony Stewart and the No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice team in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, to get their 2010 NASCAR Day pin. Fans simply make a $5 donation for the pin, and these donations will benefit children and communities across the United States.

Office Depot is carrying the collectible pins for the first time this year, with availability at its more than 1,100 retail stores nationwide through NASCAR Day on May 21. Funds raised through this partnership with Office Depot will benefit The NASCAR Foundation and The Office Depot Foundation. Both non-profit organizations share a commitment to supporting programs that help children live happier, healthier lives and strengthen communities.

"The Office Depot Foundation and The NASCAR Foundation make a real difference in the lives of children and communities, and I'm proud to support their work," said Tony Stewart, who helped The Office Depot Foundation donate more than 300,000 backpacks to children in need during the 2009 back-to-school season. "I definitely plan to 'get my pin on' for NASCAR Day, and I hope every NASCAR fan will do the same by picking up their own pin at an Office Depot store today."

Stewart is a longtime supporter of NASCAR Day and one of several drivers who appear in the 2010 NASCAR Day commercial. NASCAR Day is an annual charitable celebration of the NASCAR spirit that enables fans and corporate partners to join together to make a difference in the lives of children. Since it began in 2004, NASCAR Day has raised nearly $8 million for charity.

"The Office Depot Foundation is so pleased to partner with NASCAR and The NASCAR Foundation, as well as NASCAR fans everywhere," said Mary Wong, president of The Office Depot Foundation. "Collectively, we can make a positive impact on the lives of so many children and communities in need, and NASCAR Day is a wonderful way for us to achieve that goal together.
