box tops for education
I like to help our schools wherever I can.
Sometimes too much; as in I’m the one they always ask because I have a very hard time saying no.
I think I have a great idea for a school fundraiser, and then all of a sudden I am the one leading the committee. I think I’m just going to participate at PTA meetings, and then suddenly I’m the secretary.
Gatorade mom, snack bar mom, room parent mom, most days I feel like I’m at school as much as my kids are.
but when Stella began asking me for box tops… now that is something I have no trouble at all saying yes to
Buying things we already use, and simply clipping the box tops is one of the easiest ways I can think of to help our school.
I was curious as to why Stella was asking for them, she had never even mentioned box tops before.
Turns out, Stella has a very creative PE teacher; for the kids that bring in 100 box tops, NO laps before class starts! SO Stella has been on a mission, the mile run is definitely not her favorite thing to do.
I made a grocery list of box top items, including many bonus box top products, headed to Walmart, and stocked up on cereal, snacks for lunch boxes, and a few easy weeknight meal options.
One shopping trip done, and with all the bonus box tops we’ve already collected 50 box tops -so Stella is halfway way to lap free PE
She wins, and the school wins because for every box top turned in, they get $ .10 to use wherever they need it.
Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs, with over 80,000 k-8 schools participating. Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996.
With SO many participating products, and something for everyone, Box Tops and Walmart make it easy to give back to our schools who give so much to our kids.
