Giving Back

Our Local Commitment

When you choose Blaisdell’s as your single source for office supplies, you’re also choosing a local, woman-owned business that is dedicated to making a difference!

Our team gives back to the community by donating their time to volunteer activities, supporting collection drives, and financially contributing to a wide variety of nonprofits that are right in our backyard.

We’re also delighted to share our annual giving program, Blaisdell’s Nonprofit Choice Awards, which encourages our customers and employees to determine where our financial contributions will go year after year. If you know a nonprofit that deserves recognition, we would love to hear from you! Please complete the nomination form below.

With the acquisition of Give Something Back in 2018, Blaisdell’s introduced an exclusive giving program to give back to nonprofits making an impact in their local communities. The program incorporates customer opinions but collecting nominations throughout the year. At the end of each year, a anonymous ballot is sent to Blaisdell’s employees for final selection. The top selected nonprofit from each region is then contacted and receives a $1,000 monetary donation.

We currently support the local communities where we actively do business: Sacramento, San Diego, Northern Nevada, and the regions of the Greater Bay Area including San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose.

We’re delighted to continue this new donation process, supporting and giving back to our community for many years to come! If you are a Blaisdell’s customer interested in nominating an organization for this year’s ballot, please complete the form below:
