New for 2011/12 School Year: BoxTops for Education
Elizabeth Kalbacher (Mom of Colby in UPE and Caye in LE1) here to tell you about Parkside’s newest (and maybe easiest) fundraiser – BoxTops for Education (BTFE).
BTFE is all about the difference 1 can make. This year, our goal is to raise $1000 through BTFE toward our total fundraising efforts to support scholarships, our growing art program and our classical guitar program. Here are three easy, everyday ways you can help:
Clip — Clip the Box Top from hundreds of participating products and send them to school. Each one is worth 10¢! In years past we had avoided BTFE because the majority of the products were not in line with what Parkside promotes with regard to healthy and environmentally friendly products for our homes and families. However, BTFE coupons are now on Cascadian Farms products, the new Betty Crocker Gluten Free line, Green Giant fresh produce, Nature Valley products, Land o Lakes Butter & Eggs, Zip-Loc re-usable containers and Brita filtration products to name a few.
Shop online — Shop at your favorite online stores (like Target, GAP, Dell, iTunes, Lands’ End, Old Navy, PetsMart, Southwest Vacations, Shutterfly to name a few) through the Box Tops Marketplace®. Up to 15 eBoxTops™ per $10 spent on qualifying purchases is automatically donated to our school, at no additional cost to you. Plus, you’ll get exclusive Box Tops deals and discounts! Be sure to enter your favorite online stores through the Box Tops Marketplace®.
Read — Buy books online through the Reading Room, a partnership between Box Tops and Barnes and Noble. Our school receives up to 6 eBoxTops per $10 spent on qualifying purchases.
Sign up — It’s easy and free. Sign up to support Parkside at boxtops4education.com. Share this information with family and friends (near and far) so they can support Parkside as well.
