The STEAM School is now participating in the Box Tops for Education program!
This means that STEAM families can bring in clipped Box Tops that will be submitted for ten cents each for the school! Our first submission in the amount of $120.00 is currently processing, which will be paid out in the December Box Tops payment – Woohoo!
What are Box Tops? Box Tops are those little pink and white clips you’ll find on all sorts of common foods and household products. Here’s a picture of some:
Oh, and sometimes these guys…
How should I bundle/collect them? Submit box tops in baggies or tape them to collection sheets if you prefer (either way works just fine). As long as a box top is in tact and not expired, it will count toward our earnings! Don’t worry about trimming them perfectly.
Any tips for collecting? Be sure to let friends and family know that you are collecting Box Tops – in many cases they will be happy to save theirs up for you to submit. This can make a big difference! Kids also like to hunt for them on products. Send your Box Top detectives into the pantry to see if there are any hiding there, so they don’t get accidentally thrown out with packaging.
Where should I leave them? You can leave box tops on the counter near the payment box at STEAM where our coordinator will pick them up regularly. If you have friends and relatives collecting remotely, they can always be mailed to P.O. Box 112, Markham, VA, 22643 as well.
