General Mills Box Tops for Education
At AOC we participate in the General Mills Box Tops for Education Program. Last we collected 3,587 Box Tops which equaled $358.70 raised for the school. This year our goal is to raise more than $500, which is a little more than one box top per child at the school. Box tops are each worth 10¢ for schools and are found on hundreds of General Mills household and food products.
We collect box tops all year-round, but the school has a formal submission deadline twice a year to make sure we get the cash sent to us. The next submission deadline is the end of October. If you have been collecting over the summer, we are happy to collect them anytime!
Cut out the box top on many household products that you already purchase. Have your friends and family members save their box tops too!
Send your box tops by using a Ziploc bag or envelope
Tape or glue box tops on a collection sheet (see attached or available on the PCO bulletin board in the school lobby)
Return your box tops to the collection box in the school office. You can also send them in your child’s communication folder.
Please reach out on any questions you may have and happy clipping!
