Box Tops For Education $50,000,000 Flash Parade

I became the Box Tops for Education Coordinator my school when my son was in Kindergarten.  I wanted to be able to help and give back, but with an infant at home, it was impossible for me to volunteer my time at school.

The Box Tops program was something that I could do at home.  Plus, it benefits our school in a big way.  My son is now in 4th grade and I'm still the coordinator.

We are a small school, 350 students, but we manage to earn just over $800 a school year with the Box Tops for Education program.  I sponsor monthly contests as well as 2 big contests right before the submission deadlines. 

Even if you don't have children in school, I encourage you to save your Box Tops and donate them.  You can drop them off at your local elementary school and support their education!  You can help make a difference, one dime at a time!

Did you know that by simply participating in the Box Tops for Education program, America´s schools can earn over $50 million this school year?  That's simply amazing and proves how saving a little at a time can really add up!



Box Tops for Education was created by General Mills in 1996 as an easy way to help make a difference for kids and schools. Since then, schools have earned more than $375 million through the program to help get the things they need-from books and school supplies to playground equipment and computers. Help make a difference in schools by clipping Box Tops from more than 240 brands, including Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Hamburger Helper, Kleenex, Ziploc, Hefty, Juicy Juice, Avery, Welch´s, Land O´Lakes and Brita.

I was first introduced to Box Tops when I lived in TX with my brother & sister-in-law. They saved them for my nephew. My son is only 17months old & I still save them. Not sure where to send mine because I know noone here in the area to give them to or anything.

But I have been saving them no the less.

I do participate, my sons are 7 and 11. I save them for their school. The school uses the money for good behavior prizes.
