After the upcoming holiday, many children will be starting a new school year (if they haven’t already) and one successful program dedicated to raising money for schools is Box Tops for Education. Education is important as we all know, but schools are constantly in need of resources, equipment, supplies, teaching materials and other items to help provide children a comprehensive learning environment. The Box Tops for Education program helps raise funds for school and some ways schools have chosen to use the funds raised include purchasing computers, books, playground equipment and classroom parties.
Funds are raised by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating products found in your local grocery store, which are then sent to your school of choice. Your school earns 10¢ for each Box Top redeemed. To help with raising funds, Sam’s Club has partnered with Box Tops for Education with their BIG CLIP campaign. From August 15th through September 4th, Sam’s Club shoppers can get more Box Tops coupons on their favorite back to school brands, maximizing earnings for schools.
Participating brands include: Cheerios, Ziploc containers, Ziploc sandwich bags, Honey Nut Cheerios, Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fiber One Oats & Chocolate Bars, Nature Valley Bars, Scott Paper Towels, Huggies Baby Wipes and Kleenex Facial Tissues.
Although the BIG CLIP campaign ends today, September 4th, that doesn’t mean you can’t support the Box Tops for Education program throughout the year! In fact, to encourage you to clip box tops for your neighborhood schools, I’m offering up some freebies. I will be giving away:
- 5 one-day passes to Sam’s Club warehouse stores to 5 readers… and one of those 5 readers will also receive a $25 gift certificate to apply to their purchases.
– Giveaway is only for those who live in the United States – my apologies to my international readers!
