boxtopsCLIP THOSE PINK BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Our school earns 10 cents for every box top collected. This may not sound like a lot, but it adds up quickly. School can receive up to $20,000 per school year from clipped Box Tops. Imagine what we can do with $20,000: New books, supplies, field trips, new program funding and more!

Ask family and neighbors to collect Box Tops, put an envelope in your apartment building recycling/garbage room. Send those Box Tops in with your child in an envelope marked “BOX TOPS”. We have dedicated parent volunteers who collect, count and submit the box tops for redemption.
