As I've shared before, I'm the Box Tops Coordinator for our elementary school. It's a fun job, and I love seeing how much money we raise with this easy-to-use program. It's also why I love sharing great deals with you that let you earn double Box Tops – like right now when you buy Scott, Viva and Kleenex at Walmart! While you're out doing your back to school shopping, keep an eye out for the special packaging with double Box Tops, and take this opportunity to stock up your home with paper products, too.
As a busy parent, I get frustrated when our school plans too many fundraisers and is always asking for something. I love that the Box Tops for Education fundraiser happens year-round and is so easy for families to participate. Did you know that over 80,000 K-8 schools participate? It's one of America's largest school-earning loyalty programs! I make a big poster that hangs next to the cafeteria and shows how many Box Tops each class has collected. It's a fun competition between the classes, and it really motivates the kids to collect more. The top class enjoys a Wii party at the end of the year.
Do you collect Box Tops for your school? I'd love to know what you think schools or teachers can do to make it easier for parents. Please leave a comment below.
