Giving Back to Communities around the World
Since 2012, we have partnered with Spring Global Delivery Solutions to deliver and donate almost 900 pallets of product samples to various global charities—this amounts to over 4.5 million pens and other products that have gone to those who are in need.
In the US, we also donate writing instruments to multiple organizations which prepare children to learn and succeed with free school supplies. This includes the Kids in Need Foundation, which serves a national network of organizations, like PENCIL, a local nonprofit benefiting Nashville Public Schools.
The #LPPENCILBox has pens for days, thanks to a generous donation from @NationalPen!
Because of this partnership and amazing contribution, every teacher who comes to our store can now leave with literally thousands of pens to share with their students! #PENCIL4Schools
We’re also dedicated to working with our local communities, including partnering with charities and organizations to donate food, clothing, pet supplies, and other must-haves. Every year, our Dundalk employees vote for which charity they’d like to donate to—over the last four years, they have raised over €15,000 for local charities including Dundalk Dog Rescue, The Birches Alzheimer Day Centre, North Louth Hospital, and Rape Crisis North East.
From social to environmental initiatives,
nothing is more important to us
than taking care of the communities we work in and serve.
A Message from our CEO
I would like to personally thank you for continuing to choose National Pen. During these turbulent times, strengthening relationships with our customers is so important to us.
We have been providing our customers with personalized marketing solutions for over half a century now, and during this time we’ve seen significant changes across the world. Now more than ever, we are grateful for the connections we’ve made with our customers and partners, our National Pen family. Our business was built on strong relationships, innovation, customization and collaboration. It is these longstanding values that will see us through this unprecedented time.
As Covid-19 creates this new reality for all of us, we are focused on the best interests and well-being of our customers, our team members and the global community. We are taking all necessary measures to ensure the safety and health of our team members, and we are still open for business.
For Our Customers:
We are here for you – on our website and on our social channels. From providing relevant and affordable products and flexible payment terms to creating and curating articles and information for your business recovery, it’s our goal to be a valuable resource for you.
For Our Team Members:
The health and safety of all our team members remains our top priority. Most of our team are now working from home to slow the COVID-19 curve. For our manufacturing and Customer Care locations, where the work of our team members cannot be performed remotely, local leaders have put in place all appropriate measures to ensure continued health and safety, including social distancing, the mandatory wearing of facemasks in our facilities and enhanced disinfecting protocols.
For Our Global Community:
At National Pen we understand the importance of supporting our local communities, particularly during times like these. We have already donated pens to the HSE COVID-19 testing center in Dundalk, where our European headquarters is located, and we will be donating additional pens to first responders in San Diego, where our U.S. headquarters is based.
National Pen’s parent company Cimpress has already donated over 100,000 facemasks to a range of hospitals and the Red Cross. I am happy to announce that National Pen is in the process of donating 25,000 facemasks to elder care facilities and organizations in communities where we operate to support them in protecting the most vulnerable in our society.
Please be assured that National Pen continues to be there for you and your business, our team members, and the global community. Together, we can get through this!
