Disclosure: I receive monetary compensation from General Mills in exchange for my endorsement of Box Tops For Education.
After spending two years on the PTA board of my daughter’s school, I’ve learned the importance of all the fundraising efforts. Without fundraising, our students wouldn’t have access to many things, like events and even necessities. Last year, our PTA was able to raise enough money for the school to receive new desks. Many textbooks are also purchased through fundraising as well, which makes me wonder what would happen if our PTA wasn’t as strong as it is and dedicated to raising money for the school.
Part of my duties on the PTA board includes finding innovative ways to bring money into the school. Box Tops for Education is a program that’s been used for years in our school as a way to effortlessly bring in extra money. We send out fun collection sheets home monthly, which can be found on the Box Tops for Education website. For every 2 sheets collected, our school received $5. Our goal was set for $1,000 this past year and we made it to nearly $850! That’s $850 for our students just by collecting Box Tops from products we already use. Since Costco is a hot spot for preparing for back to school, I thought it was nice that I could still collect Box Tops while picking up basic necessities. Our go-to items are Multi-Grain Cheerios, Annie’s Mac n Cheese, which both have Box Tops we can clip for our school. Other items on our shopping list including Fiber One Chewy bars as well as Go-Gurt- these are great to pack for camp snacks and hold up really well when frozen before popping them into lunch sacks.
Right now Costco has teamed up with Box Tops and launched their Inspire Imagination Contest with some fun prizes. 3,000 members will win 100 Box Tops each by sharing why they clip Box Tops. Find out more by visiting www.CostcoBTFE.com.
