How Hefty® Box Tops Help Support Schools and Education
Finding ways to help your child raise money for their school can sometimes be tricky, especially if you aren’t really into walking door to door begging people to purchase cheesecake and wrapping paper from the latest school fundraiser. Some that I absolutely love about my daughter’s primary school is that the PTA makes it so incredibly easy for you to participate in helping raise money in simple and convenient ways. One of their recommendations is collecting Box Tops! You know those little boxes on your favorite brands of food labeled Box Tops For Education? How many times have you broken down a box, tossed it into recycling and disregarded that Box Top Label? Did you know that taking 3 seconds longer to cut out that box could result in lots of benefits for your child’s school!?
Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10 cents and schools can earn up to $20,000 every year by clipping Box Tops from hundreds of participating products. Hefty is currently the only trash bag that supports Box Tops for Education. Hefty is bringing to life its support of the Box Tops for Education program with the launch of a witty campaign, #SaidNoSchoolEver. The spots feature a series of teachers with amusing commentary, such as, “This map… from 1913… almost all the states are there.” With a dash of humor, the videos remind us why schools appreciate getting a check from the Box Tops program. Check out this hilarious video from Hefty! What has your children’s school never said? Thanks everyone but our school does not need any new learning materials… #SaidNoSchoolEver!
To date, Hefty has donated over $3.5 million to schools through the Box Tops for Education program. To give the program an added push, for a limited time, select Hefty trash bag packages will carry four Box Tops coupons per package instead of one! Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10 cents and schools can earn up to $20,000 every year by clipping Box Tops from hundreds of participating products.
Which Hefty brand products participate?
- All Hefty® trash bags
- Select Hefty® tableware products, including Hefty® Ultimate™ Easy Grip® cups, Hefty® Everyday™ plates and bowls; printed cups; Style™ plates, and Hefty® Deluxe™ plates and platters
A great way to get the entire family involved is to find a jar, decorate it together and place it somewhere in the kitchen. Make it fun for the kids to want to participate and fill the jar! Once you fill the jar full of Box Tops, you are ready to earn your child’s school some money for the things they need most. SO SIMPLE, am I right!?
