Box Tops

box top logo Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to another great year at Freedom Elementary School!  Your volunteer coordinator for Box Tops for Education program this year is Lora Krier. This year, our goal is to raise $2000 for our school. Box Tops offers three easy ways to earn cash for our school through everyday activities such as buying groceries, shopping online and purchasing books.

Clip — Clip Box Top coupons from hundreds of participating products and send them to school.  Box Tops coupons are worth 10¢ each when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education.  

Shop — Shop at your favorite online stores through the Box Tops Marketplace.  Up to 8% of each qualifying purchase is automatically donated to our school.  There is no additional cost to your purchase and many exclusive deals and discounts can be found! 

Buy books — Purchase books online at Barnes & Noble through the Box Tops Reading Room.  Our school will receive 6% of your new book purchases and 3% of all other online purchases.  One of the easiest ways you can help is to sign up to support our school at www.boxtops4education.com.  You will learn about new and easy ways to help our school earn the extra cash it needs. 

Please turn in your box tops!!!!  Thanks for all of your support!
