You don’t have to have kids in grades K through 8th to lend support to your local schools by collecting specially marked General Mills® Box Tops for Education™ products. In fact, whether you’re pre-children, childless by choice, an empty nester like me, or a grandparent I encourage you participate – it’s a simple way to provide dollars to support our local school. Plus you probably already buy many of the products included in the program Like Big G Cereals including popular varieties like Lucky Charms, Cheerios, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Every time you throw away one of those marked box tops, you’re tossing a dime into the trash that could have gone to local children.
Where to Donate Box Tops for Education
Don’t know where to donate your tops? Check with relatives with children who may be collecting them. If that’s not an option for you, there are over 80,000 kindergarten through eighth grade schools nationwide that participate in the General Mills® Box Tops for Education™ program, so it’s likely there’s one in your neighborhood. Call your school and ask for the name of the Box Top Coordinator and ask if you can drop off or box tops to the office.
Those Dimes Add Up!
Since the program’s inception in 1996, schools have earned over $525 million dollars through the Box Tops for Education program, that’s a lot of money! The best part of the program is that there are no strings to how the money is used so schools and parent organizations can spend it to supplement existing programs, buy equipment, and more.
Print a Reminder / Holder Envelope and Get Collecting!
To help you get started on saving those box tops, I created a list of products that can be found with the special box tops, so you don’t forget to save them on a free printable you can assemble and hang in your cupboard or on the refrigerator to remind you to buy products that benefit kids. If you have a child collecting box tops, have them assemble the holders and write a personal note on the back. Most friends and family are glad to help, they just need to be asked.Download and Print a Box Tops for Education Holder
