FREE MONEY FOR CAMARILLO HEIGHTS!
There are many wonderful free programs that are active here at Cam Heights. I am the chairwoman for two of them and wanted to share my excitement with you on how to earn free money for our school. There are companies willing to support education through fun programs at no cost to our school! Let me tell you about them.
Box Tops For Education (www.boxtops4education.com)
This wonderful program, sponsored by General Mills, offers up to $60,000 per school. There are three ways to earn money; clipping Box Tops, shopping the internet through the Box Tops Marketplace and using a Box Tops Visa. We will be having several collection days for the clipped Box Tops. There will be prizes available to earn based on the number of Box Tops that are turned in on each collection day. The Smencils will be back this year. You can earn one for every 50 Box Tops you turn in on a collection day. Box Tops totals are not kept on a running total so if you want to earn a Smencil save up 50 Box Tops for the collection day. We will also be having drawings for gift cards. You can earn one entry for every 10 Box Tops you turn in. Last school year the students clipped 14,806 Box Tops. Along with the marketplace and Visas, Cam Heights earned $1520.72! Fantastic Job!
Labels for Education (www.labelsforeducation.com)
These labels are found on Campbell’s Soup, Pepperidge Farm, V8, Franco American, Prego and Market Day products. We have collected thousands of labels and bonus receipts that are printed on the bottom of grocery store receipts. All of the bonuses are good for the entire school year no matter what the program end date states. There are hundreds of items for our school to choose from using the points earned from the labels. This year we only have to cut the UPC code, not the whole label. There is a red and white collection container in the office. Feel free to turn in the labels any time.
The key to taking advantage of this free money is to get everyone involved. Ask your extended family, neighbors, and co-workers to save the Box Tops and Labels for Education. I am looking forward to another successful collection year.
