Tualatin Community. Are you familiar with the Box Tops for Education Program? I am sure you have seen the little pink Box Tops on your favorite brand of cereal, or on your favorite cake mix. Did you know that each Box Top is worth .10 cents and can add up quickly?
When schools submit their Box Tops, money earned can be used towards technology, school or class activities, after school programs and more! For many schools, this can equal a few thousand dollars a year!
Well, the Box Tops program is changing the way we can earn cash for our schools!
Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clips to the new Box Tops label:Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now.
The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to a selected school’s earnings online.
If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing products.
School Box Top clips can be accepted at any time. Each time you clip a Box Top or scan your receipt, your local elementary school can benefit. Please consider downloading the app and supporting your local community! If you don’t have a local school, consider selecting Tualatin Elementary through the app and support our school!
