I now have three children in the NYC Public Schools. When I was a teacher in the NYC public schools, my schools collected Box Tops for Education. While I would bring in Box Tops when I remembered – as a parent, I haven’t been on the ball. While gearing up for this new school year, I am going to get serious about collecting Box Tops and I’ve asked my parents and in-laws to collect them to help.
Did you know:
- Box Tops are worth $0.10 for your child’s school
- Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs.
- Over 80,000 k-8 schools participate
- Schools can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need
- Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996.
And it’s so easy, so many brands offer box tops (and sometimes MULTIPLE Box Tops) on their products.
We took a trip to Walmart the other day to get ready for making lunches and sending snacks to school.
I picked up Fiber One Bars, Mott’s Applesauce, Nature Valley’s Breakfast Biscuits and Honey Nut Cheerios. Basically breakfast and snack for the first week of school for all three kids.
How Box Tops Work:
1. Buy products with the Box Tops for Education Logo (Find a list of Box Tops for Education products here, plus categories – http://www.boxtops4education.com/participating-products
2. Clip your Box Tops
3. Collect your Box Tops and give them to your school’s coordinator
4. The school gets $0.10 for each Box Top
Look for products with bonus Box Tops at Walmart to get even more for your money!
Do you collect Box Tops? What’s your best organizational tip?
