What's better than eating yummy foods? Helping Schools w/box tops!!! ($25 GC)

OK, so we all buy products that have Box Top points on them right?
Did you know that even if you don't have School age children, or children at all for that matter, you can still help School's earn much needed money through the Box Top program?

Now I have to be honest, as a mommy of 6, and always on the go, having to remember to cut out the box top points and store them, has sometimes been forgotten, or too much of a hassle.  Well, obviously I was not the only one, lol, and to help us helpers/parents even more, the box top program just got so much easier ;)


To make it even easier to participate in the program, the SuperValu family of stores (ACME, Albertsons, Cub, Farm Fresh and Jewel-Osco) joined Box Tops for Education in creating a website that not only tracks your Box Tops contribution and the school’s redemption, but also offers recipes, coupons, store promotions and more.


It's so easy, to register, just go to www.GrowingLocalLearning.com . You will automatically receive 5 Bonus Box Tops just for signing up! Cool right!?
While you're there, go ahead and browse the website where you will find a variety of great offers on your favorite General Mills brands including Betty Crocker®, Old El Paso®, Totino’s® Pizza Rolls® and Pillsbury®, you can also find recipes that will earn you even more Box Tops and you can access coupons for the latest deals at your local SuperValu store! 

 How much more fun can it get to help a School in need?  Here's a fun and awesome fact, in the 2008-09 school year, the schools earned more than $10 million dollars from the support of everyone that cares ;)


As we all know, the budget problems have left so many schools without money for important supplies, in California, I know first hand of many Teachers that have and will be laid off, due to the California budget.  Any and all the help our schools and children can get, is always appreciated and put to great use, towards our futures, the futures of our children ;)

If you do not know of a school that you can donate towards, feel free to comment me, and I can help find you some, on  behalf of the Children, Teachers, and Parents, I thank you!!!
Guess who thanks you as well!?!?
SuperValu and General Mills ;)

  2. I registered and chose Apple Grove Elementary School in Maryland. I like that we can earn cash for some under-funded schools in hopes that they can purchase the things the need for their students.

  8. I registered and gave the points to M*****h middle school in my neighborhood.
    What I also liked about the program is that they offer a simple way to help local schools. It helped my nephew's school purchase computers.
