Zuma & Local Schools team with Central Texas Food Bank for another successful Food Drive!

ZumaOffice.com, Vandegrift High School and Four Points Middle School had another incredible Holiday Food Drive supporting the Central Texas Food Bank.  The 7th Annual event, spearheaded by Zuma and the VHS Boys Basketball team, collected 2,109 lbs. of food which equals 1,758 meals for hungry Central Texans at a time when the food bank has an increased demand for food.

Since the food drive’s modest beginnings in 2012, over 13,902 pounds of food totaling 11,585 meals has been collected.  What made this year’s food drive so successful was the enlistment of over 12 different VHS organizations to all get involved with the basketball team to raise awareness for the food drive and get students excited to help others.

Zuma and Central Texas Food Bank Staff load up tons of food!

“While all the organizations did an incredible job collecting donations, special thanks go out to the National Honor Society who exceeded all expectations by bringing in an amazing amount of food,” said VHS Basketball Coach Cliff Ellis who has been a driving force of the food drive since inception.

“Special thanks and recognition also goes to Kirsten Mulligan who really got the whole school involved in the holiday spirit of giving back, and got the visibility of what we are doing raised throughout the school.”

Kimina Jamison, Community Engagement Coordinator for the Central Texas Food Bank said their organization was again thrilled by the generous donations from VHS and FPMS again this year.  “The Zuma and Vandegrift High School annual food drive continues to surprise the food bank with their incredible generosity each year.  To raise 1,750 meals for needy families during this time of year goes so far in helping us with our mission to feed hungry Central Texans.”

“We are really proud and honored by the efforts everyone made in turning this holiday season into one of the most charitable we’ve seen to date,” said Greg Pierce, President of Zuma Office.

Zuma and VHS Launch Central Texas Food Bank Food Drive November 27th!

Vandegrift High School and ZumaOffice.com Team Up For 7th Annual Holiday Food Drive.

We are excited to announce the launch of the 7th Annual ZumaOffice.com and Vandegrift High School Holiday Food Drive benefiting the Central Texas Food Bank which kicks off today. Sponsored by the VHS Boys Basketball Team, VHS Key Club and Four Points Middle School, the food drive has raised an astounding 12,000 pounds of food for hungry Central Texas during the holiday season.

VHS Boys Basketball Coach Cliff Ellis anticipates another banner year for the food drive with his players and families taking an active part in raising donations. “It’s hard to believe this is the 7th year for the VHS and Zuma food drive,” commented Coach Ellis. “What started out as an idea to get involved in the community by asking for canned goods from fans attending a basketball game has morphed into a big event for both VHS and Four Points Middle School students.”

Zuma and Central Texas Food Bank Staff load up pallet loads of food!

The first couple of years the food drive generated several packed donation boxes for the Food Bank, and by year 3 students were donating up to 10 – 12 full pallet loads of food that required 18 wheel freight trucks to haul off the contributions.

“The Central Texas Food Bank really appreciates this food drive because in comes at a time when they really need the donations for the holidays. Zuma employees set up the boxes, print and hang the posters announcing the event, and collect all the donations at the end for pick-up,” says Greg Pierce, President of ZumaOffice.com. “Our whole company loves helping out because VHS and FPMS families are so generous with their giving. We all feel this truly makes a difference.”

The food drive runs between Tuesday November 27 through noon on Wednesday December 19th. Donation boxes are at the Front Office at VHS, and located in three classrooms at FPMS for anyone who’d like to get involved and drop off a donation. Do Good Work with Zuma, VHS, FPMS and the Central Texas Food Bank this holiday season!

Zuma Annual Donation and Giving Back Update

Zuma was very excited to send our annual charitable donations in September, and here’s our annual Giving Back update for our customers.  Zuma was founded with the business purpose of giving back and making a difference through donating a significant portion of our profits to charity and volunteering our time.  Thanks to our loyal customers and the hard work of the whole ZumaOffice.com team, Zuma was proud to make our largest donations to date.

Since our founding, Zuma has now donated over $89,000 to great charities that do good work every day, truly helping those in need.  “We are thrilled the donations made for our fiscal year 2017 were the largest in company history,” said Greg Pierce, President of ZumaOffice.com.  “The charities we support were all extremely grateful, and we know that people’s lives will be improved from our contributions.  We just wished it was more.”

The SIMS Foundation provides local Austin musicians much needed health care services.

Below is a list of the charities who received donations from Zuma this year.  We encourage all of our customers and website visitors to check out these great organizations.  You might even consider helping them through donations or volunteer work in your area.  They are all very highly rated charities, most all donations go directly to the cause, and they provide assistance in areas important to Zuma staff and our customers:

  1. Best Friends Animal Society – Pets & Animal Rescue
  2. Big Brothers Big Sisters – Child Mentoring Programs
  3. Central Texas Food Bank – Hunger Relief

“Because we were donating what little we could even when we were not a profitable company those first few years, we’ve donated over 85% of our total profits to help those less fortunate,” added Greg.  “It gives us all a good reason to go to work each morning selling office supplies, knowing in our small way we are making a difference”.

Thank you to all our Zuma customers!  Without you we do not exist.  Together we can Do Good Work!

Shop Discount Auto Dealer Supplies at Zuma and Save!

Auto Dealer Supplies by Zumaoffice.com

Until now, auto dealerships had to order all the tools they need to run a successful car dealership from many different sources. Auto dealer supplies are hard to find, and most vendors don’t even have websites for easy ordering. Then they’d get ink and toner and copy paper from an online office supplies store, their showroom furniture from an office interiors company, their janitorial supplies from a cleaning service, and their breakroom and coffee items for the waiting area from a coffee service company.

Now, Zuma has added auto dealer supplies to our huge selection of office supplies, janitorial supplies, furniture, breakroom supplies, and technology products so you can save time ordering from one source. Our website was designed to make searching for Auto Dealers Supplies easier than any other website! Finding the Deal Jackets and Versa-tags Key Tags you need is a breeze with our awesome site search.

Make Your Space Less Boring

Nobody likes to work in a monochrome box for 8 hours. Don’t worry, Zuma has a solution. You spend a third of your day at work, so you might as well try to make your office space your own. Here are some easy ways to make your space better, more colorful, and not so boring.

Save the Day with Post-Its

Create a wall of color with Post-It notes. They are the easiest way to brighten up any space. Just stick them everywhere and feel your frown turn upside down. Everyone is always in need of a post-it so be your office hero! Not only can you save the day, but you will have the most colorful cubicle around.


Put Your Ideas on Paper

Don’t forget all your amazing ideas you want to share at the next meeting. There are so many options out there, get a notebook that fits you. Get the creativity flowing by jotting down quick ideas or just stay organized with your daily responsibilities. Check out the TOPS Idea Creative Journal to help get you to the next level.


Whiteboards are AWESOME!

When work slows down or you just need that 5 to 10 min break, make sure you have added a Whiteboard to your space. Get some colorful markers and let the games begin. They’re great for playing tic-tac-toe with coworkers or creating funny doodles that make you and your friends laugh throughout the day.



Get Comfortable at Work

Your chair might never be a magical throne, but it can have an awesome backrest that provides you with the  support you need. We have many unique designs that offer comfort and support while promoting good posture. Try the Breathable mesh which allows airflow for cool, comfortable use. Elastic strap secures backrest in place. Ideal for office, auto or home use. We want to help make you more  comfortable, and just feel better at work!

Should My Business Sign Up For Zuma Business Class?

Q & A On The New ZBC Program:

Zuma recently launched a new program called Zuma Business Class that includes lower prices on select office supplies, lower free shipping minimums, and more. Here’s a quick Q & A to help you decide if ZBC is right for you:

Q: Why should we join Zuma Business Class?

A: You get 5 – 15% off over 14,000 office supplies and janitorial supply items. This includes many ink and toner products including brands like HP and Brother. You also get free shipping with orders of $45 or more instead of our normal free shipping level of $75.

Q: What does it cost me?

A: There is no charge to join ZBC, and no confusing contract or commitment. All we asked is that you purchase a minimum of $400 per month in total purchases, and enjoy the savings.  That’s only $100 per week of our huge selection of office, break room and janitorial supplies.

Q: This sounds too good to be true. What’s in it for Zuma?

A: Zuma wants to sell more products to our current loyal customers. We have many customers who find us online and buy only the same 1-2 items every time like binders or classification folders.  They have no idea we have fantastic prices on a huge selection of office and janitorial supplies. We know if customers will compare our prices, they will buy more from Zuma.

Q: What items have lower prices?

A: Key items like our lowest priced copy paper item – UNV91200. Also, HP has a strict Price Policy which sets the lowest price we can sell an HP item for online. However, if we have the item in a “special price plan” that you have to log-in to view, we can sell HP items for whatever is right for our business. So, we have over 600 HP ink and toner items included in ZBC. This was a big reason we designed the program.

Q: I’ve joined other “contract” programs like Staples Business Advantage. They made me sign an agreement to buy everything from them, and there were annual fees. Is ZBC like that?

A: No – there are NO fees to join ZBC, and NO requirements to buy everything from Zuma. All we ask is that you purchase a minimum of $400 per month. Hopefully you start comparing prices and see you’ll save money for your business buying more from Zuma.

Q: How do I sign up?

A: Just call Zuma at 877-473-4097, or email us at customerservice@zumaoffice.com and ask for a ZBC sign up form. Sign the form and return, and we’ll get your account set up for ZBC Pricing and $45 free shipping that same day.

Q: I’d like to set up Payment Terms with Zuma as part of this program. How do I do that?

A: When completing the ZBC sign up form, just write Yes in the Payment Terms area, and we will follow-up with all you need.

If you have any additional questions, please call. If your business buys $400 or more of office supplies, janitorial supplies and break room like most every business does, it’s truly a “no brainer”. Thank you for your business – let’s Do Good Work together!

ZumaOffice.com Featured In Austin Giving Back Story

Business Philantropy is Growing and Making a Difference

The Austin American Statesman featured an article this weekend highlighting giving back in Austin. Using statistics from a new report from Rodman and Associates on philanthropy in Austin, the article explains how companies are contributing to the community more than ever, and truly making a difference in people’s lives.

Here is the full America Statesman article entitled “Survey says Austin businesses give more than ever”.

The article features ZumaOffice.com and our activity in the community explaining how selling office supplies online can also be used as a means to do good work for others and support causes and people in need. Also featured in the article was Amy’s Ice Cream, a well known and much loved local company well known for fantastic ice cream, and helping others.

Zuma staffers working the Central Texas Food Bank mobile food pantry.

“This is a moment whose time has come,” said Debbie Johnson, principal of Austin-based consultants Successful Giving and co-author of “Give for Good: A How-To Guide for Business Giving.” “There are a lot more companies in Austin and around the country that are not only giving back, but giving back much more visibly.”

Buying office supplies is something business and individuals do all the time – a usually mundane task of stocking the supply cabinet or getting office products to finish a project. Zuma takes the routine out of this task, and turns it into an event for good by sharing its profits with great charities that make a difference.

“Zuma is in business to give back,” said Greg Pierce, President of ZumaOffice.com. “It gives us a Higher Purpose to get up and go to work in the morning, while keeping us focused on being the best company we can be. The fact is the better job we do, the more customers we can attract and satisfy, the more we are able to give back and make a difference”.
