Busy lifestyles and tight finances can make it tough to find the time or resources to help your community. Here’s a simple way you can do your part and support schools in your own neighborhood. The Box Tops for Education program sponsored by General Mills makes it easy for anyone to pitch in and raise money to help kids, teachers and their schools.
Earn cash with everyday products
Box Tops for Education is a successful fundraising program that has helped America’s schools earn over $300 million in the past 13 years. And it’s easy to get involved—just look for the Box Tops coupons found on many of your everyday products, clip the coupons and turn them into your local participating school. After the school submits the coupons, they’ll receive a check. The program has helped local schools across the country earn cash to get the things they need—from books and school supplies to playground equipment and computers.
Look for Box Tops on Avery office products
Now part of the Box Tops program, Avery is excited to be the first office products company to participate as a partnering brand with General Mills. You’ll find Box Tops coupons on over 600 specially marked Avery products for school and work.
Put the “fun” in fundraising
Earning cash for schools can be an enjoyable experience that doesn’t put a crimp in your schedule or pocketbook. Check out these Box Tops collection ideas to get started.
- Spend quality time for a good cause. You and your family can bond together while collecting Box Tops coupons from all your favorite products. Just look for the Box Tops coupons on Avery binders, dividers, markers, highlighters, glue sticks and more. You’ll get back-to-school supplies that also give back.
- Make a difference through work. Collecting Box Tops isn’t limited to classrooms or your home. You’ll find Box Tops coupons on your favorite Avery mailing and shipping labels, presentation binders, sheet protectors and other office supplies you use at work. Check with your office administrator about setting up collection boxes in each department or floor of your office building, and then donating the collected coupons to a local school on behalf of your company.
- Share your passion to participate. Religious and social organizations are also great opportunities to let everyone know about the Box Tops program and get them involved in a good cause. Make it easy to collect coupons by creating collection boxes and placing them around your church, clubs and other social gathering places.
Your efforts go a long way when you help schools in your community. “Since salaries are tight… anything we give these teachers is going to be more appreciated than ever!” writes D. S. from Glenview, IL. Just by purchasing your everyday grocery and office products that participate in the Box Tops for Education program, you’ll be making a difference that kids, teachers and schools will greatly appreciate.
