Being a part of our local communities is incredibly important to all of us at The Container Store. It’s so much fun and rewarding for us to partner with local nonprofit organizations that our customers and employees are passionate about. This commitment, coupled with our product collection, easily lends itself to a focus on education. From our Organized Teacher Discount Program to school makeovers across the country, we feel that helping create well-organized, efficiently used spaces in classrooms not only leads to a better learning environment, but also helps teach children good, lifelong organization habits.
