General Mills Company wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit American schools. They began the program with only a few products such as Cheerios, Total and Lucky Charms. It was so successful that they expanded the products.
By 1998, more than 30,000 schools were clipping Box Tops and earning cash to buy the things they needed: books, computers, playground equipment and more. Over the next four years, the Box Tops for Education program expanded even more to include brands such as Pillsbury, Old El Paso and Green Giant.
By 2004, over 82,000 schools across the nation was participating in Box Tops, and earning more than $100 million. In 2006, non-food brands were now added to the program and families could clip Box Tops from Ziploc, Hefty, Kleenex and Scott products.
As the program expanded, school earnings increased!
Today, America’s schools have earned over $868 million, and you can find Box Tops on hundreds of products throughout the grocery store and online. That is pretty AMAZING! Kudos to General Mills for creating such a wonderful program.
This year, we want to collect $1000 worth, and we know we can do it! We are going to have a school celebration - It will be a BOX TOP PARTY! The classroom that collects the most each semester will get a popcorn party!
