Save Big for a Bright Future with Box Tops for Education™
Now that school is back in session, one of the first things our little ones came home talking about were Box Tops and the campaign to Save Big for a Bright Future with Box Tops for Education™. “We HAVE to collect all the Box Tops that we see on boxes!” They were super excited about this program. I’ve seen the Box Tops on products, and I have on occasion when asked, clipped a couple for a child at church or group that came around asking. But, I never really understood how far impacting the Box Tops for Education™ program reached!
According the information Box Tops for Education™ has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996. See what I mean by impressive?
So you guessed it…we are now collecting Box Tops. Not only are we collecting Box Tops, we have recruited other families that don’t have little ones at home to collect for us. We made labels and placed them on baggies before handing them out to friends and neighbors that don’t have school age children.
The little ones were so excited the next time we went shopping. They had our list and the flyer with the product listing of the bonus Box Tops items. While I did the regular shopping, they looked for the bonus symbol on products. Yay for us when the bonus symbol was found on their favorite cereals and snack items!
How the program works
Students collect Box Tops and bring them to school. Each Box Top is worth $0.10 for the school and can be used for anything the school needs or desires. For a limited time, each Box Top from a marked General Mills® product are actually worth 5 Box Tops!
Thankfully, most of the bonus boxes are on products that we already have on our weekly shopping list.
I have to admit that I was impressed when I learned that the Box Tops for Education™ program was one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs with over 80,000 K-8th grade schools participate. This program is something that we as parents can get behind and support..without having to spend any money or invest a bunch of time. I know that my budget and schedule are both stretched to their limit. Simply clipping Box Tops off the products that we already purchase is easy, and sending them in to the teacher is something the little ones NEVER forget to do when the jar gets full..so it is a no brainer for our family.

Are you collecting Box Tops? If not perhaps you should start right now. Simply clip those Box Tops and drop them off at your nearest school. Or you can ask around among your friends that have school age children. I bet you they have been asked to collect for their school. Now you can help the schools in your area earn funds for their special projects and all you needed was a baggie and a pair of scissors.
