Easily Help Your Child's School with Box Tops & General Mills®

Years ago when I was a teacher I always saw the PTA going around collecting Box Tops. Since I didn't have a child at the time I really didn't know much about the Box Tops program. I just collected them whenever I saw them and handed them to the PTA volunteers. Now that my daughter is almost in school and I have a niece starting Pre-K and a nephew starting kindergarten I finally know how important these Box Tops are to schools.

Did you know that Box Tops for Education has raised over $525 million to participating schools since it started the program in 1996? Each Box Top that is collected is worth $0.10 for your child's school. It is one of America's largest school earnings loyalty programs and has over 80,000 K-8 schools participating. I love that schools can use the Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need. I remember being a Teacher in the Bronx and having to buy supplies myself because my school just didn't have the budget for it. I love that Box Tops is helping schools, students and teachers with much needed money every day supplies.

It is so easy to find and purchase products that have the Box Tops. While shopping at Walmart I noticed all of the great General Mills® products that participated with the Box Tops. Now they have bold graphics with some having bonus Box Tops for even more cash for your child's school. All you have to do is purchase and use the Box Top products like the General Mills® Cereal or Hamburger Helper. Once you use the product you can just cut the Box Tops and collect them. I like to put them into a little mason jar. To get my nephew and niece excited about collecting and helping out their school, I created a little Box Top case they can clip into their binders.
