Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Huggies Diapers® and Kleenex®, in almost every aisle of the store.
What is Box Tops for Education?
Box Tops for Education is a program provided by General Mills products and partnering brands, where clipping the specially marked box top earns money for our school.
How much is a Box Top worth?
Each Box Top clipped and returned to our school is worth ten cents. This may not seem like a lot of money, but it adds up. We earned $188 in the 2009-2010 school year.
How do I become a Box Top collector?
Start looking at the products you use in your kitchen everyday. You would be surprised how many are partners in the Box Tops for Education program.
