Being a mom carries so many important responsibilities and near the top is educating my children. Finding fun creative ways to learn is definitely a highlight for both myself and the boys. Recently, with back to school in full swing I have focused on teaching them the art of giving back to others. I would like to share a favorite way our family is giving back this season, centered around Box Tops for Education™.
A competitive environment can have its challenges some of which can be exciting, like the ones that provide educational value. With my husband working in the educational field and two sons in elementary school the focus on education is high on our list. Box Tops for Education is one of the many programs we love. It is so easy to incorporate into our very busy schedule, while adding to some of our core values.
You see each Box Tops for Education is worth 10 cents for the school of your choice! Just think, if each student brings in just ten Box Tops that would give the school one dollar per student. That may not seem like much, but it adds up fast. In fact Box Tops for Education is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs. There are over 80,000 K-8 schools in participation.
So as part of our back to school shopping, we stocked up on some of our favorite General Mills® products while at Walmart. They are products we buy on a regular basis anyway, but offer an easy way to give back.
Some of our favorites include Yoplait yogurt, General Mills cereals, Fiber One products, Nature Valley granola bars, Pillsbury and Betty Crocker. Just look for the Box Tops symbol on the box, clip them once finished with the product, and donate them to your child’s classroom. It’s that easy!
When one program has the potential to make such a big impact it’s a no brainer for me. I bet if you looked in your pantry right now, you would find many things with Box Tops. Next week I’ll be sharing a creative way to get kids involved in giving back with Box Tops, so stay tuned!
So what are you waiting for? Shop, clip and save Box Tops for your school now!
