MOULTRIE -- R.B. Wright Elementary School has recently launched its 2004-2005 Box Tops for Education fundraising campaign. This year the school has set a goal of earning $1,000 through Box Tops.
Box Tops for Education is a school fundraising program sponsored by General Mills. Since 1996, Box Tops has helped America's schools raise more than $100 million to buy the things they need, such as library books, school supplies and playground equipment. The Box Tops for Education program offers school supporters three easy ways to earn cash for schools through everyday activities like buying groceries, shopping online and making purchases with a credit card. Schools can earn up to $60,000 each year.
Clip, the original Box Tops for Education program, allows schools to earn cash by clipping box tops from participating Box Tops products. Schools get 10 cents for each Box Top they redeem from General Mills. For a complete list of the hundreds of participating products, visit boxtops4education.com.
School supporters who sign up online for the Box Tops for Education Booster Club gain access to the second way to earn cash for schools, the Box Tops for Education Marketplace. Members can choose from more than 200 participating online stores such as JCPenney and Lands' End. Up to 8 percent of each qualifying purchase goes back to your designated school at no additional cost to you.
Third, using the Box Tops for Education Visa card ensures a donation of 1 percent of every purchase to your designated school. This low APR Visa with no annual fee can be used at over 20 million locations worldwide. Visit boxtops4education.com for details.
