With school just around the corner, it’s never too early to start stocking up on school supplies favorite snack and treats, thinking about fundraisers and any other items needed for the classroom. Speaking of fundraisers… Did you know Box Tops For Education is one of the easiest ways to raise money for your school?
I’m sure you’re familiar with the Box Tops For Education program. (It’s been around since 1996!) The Box Top program is a really easy way for schools to earn cash for the things they need. Each Box Top coupon collected is worth 10¢ and they add up fast! Schools are able to use their Box Tops cash to buy whatever is needed most, from books to field trips, even playgrounds. (Our school raised money to add a shade/cover to our existing playground-so needed!)
I have some really great news for all the Box Top collectors out there!
Walmart and General Mills have teamed up to bring us an exclusive Bonus Box Tops Offer from Walmart: Receive 4 bonus Box Tops for every 1 Box Top submitted! (When purchasing a qualifying product, look for specially marked packages at Walmart: “Buy one Box Top product and get an additional 5 bonus Box Tops!”)
My kids are going into the 3rd and 5th grade this year, and we are definitely box top clipping pros. I don’t always have the time to volunteer at our school as much as I like, but I love that I can help out with the fundraising, just by purchasing the products we know and already love. All that’s left to do is collect the Box Top coupons and turn them in!
Do you collect Box Tops for your school? I’d love to hear about your experiences and for you to share any tips and tricks you may have to encourage others at your school to collect the Box Tops too!
