Image of Box Tops asking for them to be turned inBox Tops began when General Mills wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit America’s schools.  They have given over $800 million to schools across the nation.  Our school typically generates over $1000 with this program.  This money is used for our Teacher Wish List Fund every Christmas to replenish supplies needed in the classroom and our fall turn in is quickly approaching.  Box Tops sheets go home every month and whether you fill the sheet or send them in loose, now is the time to send them in!  Each one is worth a dime and they add up fast, so turn them in now so we can have them ready for our fall turn in.

Image of two cans of soup with "Just clip and collect" on the label for eduation

In the past few years participation in Labels for Education has declined and as a result, Campbell has come to the very difficult decision to wind down the Labels for Education program. We will have a final submission on May 15, 2017. We thank you for your support for this program!  We will continue to collect Box Tops. Please send in any labels that you have in order to have them count for our school, so we will be able to use them before the program ends!
