Before you throw away or recycle (hopefully) an empty package, see if there is a “box top for education” logo to be clipped. Save these “boxtops” from participating products to donate to a local school so that they can earn money through Box Tops for Education. Each clipped box top is worth 10 cents. Click on the link to find a local school where you can drop off your box tops if you don’t have any kids in school. I try to give mine to a lady whom I work with for her daughter’s school or take them with me when I visit family for my nieces and nephews schools. Participating products may include snacks, baby and child care items, cereal, beverages, frozen food, snacks, storage items, disposible dinnerware, school items, and more.
There are a couple of other ways to participate in the Box Tops for Education. You can make purchases at your favorite online stores through the Box Tops Marketplace or purchase books from Barnes and Noble.com through the Reading Room. My Class Essentials is a new program in which teachers can register for supplemental educational that they need for their classrooms. Parents (or other supporters) can search for a classroom registry list and either purchase the needed items or donate money to the registry. The school will earn 2% cash back with each registry purchase.
Each school can earn up to $60,000 per year through these Box Tops for Education programs! With school funding constantly being cut, every little bit can help.
