I love the Box Tops program! In fact, with my children’s current ages, it’s hard for me to volunteer IN the classroom, so I volunteer by coordinating the Box Tops program– sorting, counting, bundling, and shipping out. It’s a little thing, but I’m so happy to help.

It is a challenge for our family to save box tops. I hardly ever buy cereal or brands of items that have the box tops. I have only collected 5 in the last year ( I am blushing here seriously for I seem to cook everything from scratch) and am saving them for a private school on the premises of a home for children in KY-Galilean Home. They survive solely on donations and no govt support. What a great idea to shop thru that link! Now I can help more! I also hope to win the GC!

Wendy November 14, 2008 at 8:44 am

I have always sent in the Box Tops. Last year, My daughter won the top collector for her grade at over 1,000 collected and we are heading to that goal again this year. Even before she was in school, I collected them and gave them to our church for their school or gave them to my neice. Even after my girls are out of grade school, I will still send them to the school. It is a great program

Although my kids are in high school where they don’t collect boxtops anymore, since I always collected boxtops while they were in elementary school and middle school, I continue to collect box tops, I now give them to my friends’ kids who still need them at their schools.

My mom is a principal and I’ve collected box tops for her school for over 5 years. My son is in preschool and they don’t collect them, so I’m still keeping them for mom’s school.

We have collected Box Tops for Education since Quinn was in preschool, and he’s now in middle school. I’ve even been the school Box Top Coordinator for several years, and made collection boxes for the classrooms. Most of his schools had ice cream prizes for every 50 Box Tops they turned in. If you just have a toddler, you can still collect and give them to your neighborhood school that they WILL go to. Think of it as buying library books that they will read when they get there!

My husband clips these and saves them. Our children are also too young to go to school, so we also pass them to our neighbors children to turn in. Eventually, our babies will go to that school. What a nice way to give them $$ before they are even there…plan for the future, right?

I have three children and we love to collect Box Tops! When we go to the grocery store, they will point out products that have Box Tops on them. (my middle child consistently refers to them as Tops Box!) I asked my childless family members to save Box Tops for us, too. With their help, we bring at least 400 Box Tops to school each year! I’m also registered at the Box Tops website!
