SAVE BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Send Box Tops for Education saved throughout the summer to school with your child. Continue to save Box Tops for Education throughout the school year. Last year our school received about $1,000 from box tops collected during the school year. Box Tops for Education can be found on items such as cereal, tissues, toilet paper, diapers, crackers, and many frozen food items. Each Box Top for Education is worth 10 cents. Often packages will include more than one box top. Sometimes stores will have a promotion and will give a receipt with additional box tops.
