Many years ago, when my youngest child started Kindergarten, I was approached by a mom about getting involved in the elementary school PTA. She was an active PTA member and needed help with a school club. I threw my hat into the volunteer pool and have been an active PTA mom ever since. I have sat on the PTA board and looked at my club budget and wondered where we were going to come up with a few more dollars for activities. Even now that my kids are teenagers and in middle and highschool, I still sit in on PTA meetings and volunteer my time and donate my money to further their education and make their school experience enjoyable. I have figured out over the years that it takes a LOT of time, money and volunteer hours to keep a school running smoothly. There is one thing you can do to help your kid's school bring in a little bit more money and it takes very little effort from you. All you need to do is keep your eye out for those Box Tops for Education while you are buying groceries!
Box Tops for Education for a Brighter Future!
If you aren't familiar with the Box Tops for Education program, let me tell you a few key facts you should know. Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs. So far, there are over 80,000 k-8 schools participating in this program. Each Box Top is worth 10¢ for your school and you can send those box tops in whenever you want. No need to wait for a particular day, week or month of the school year. Schools can then use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need. And let me tell you...schools have a LOT of needs to help improve your child's education! Box Tops earnings are sent out to schools twice a year, in December and in April. This money really comes in handy when schools are planning upgrades to technology, STEAM programs, media centers, etc. Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996.
You can find Box Tops for Education on tons of products that you buy every single day. Cereal, granola bars, taco shells, and a whole host of foods that are probably sitting in your pantry already. Start getting into the habit of looking for that little pink Box Top when you are doing your weekly food shopping. Right now at Walmart, you can find specially marked boxes of General Mills products that have Bonus Box Tops available on them. This is only a limited time offer so once those specially marked boxes are gone you will have missed your chance to earn 5 times more money for your child's school!
Do you collect Box Tops for your child's school? We found lots of great Box Top labeled products at Walmart last week! Keep your eyes on the blog over the next few days and I will be sharing a fun way to make Box Top collecting fun for your kids and easier for YOU!
