SBCO Collects Labels for Education and Box Tops for Education.

Emilie Siarkiewicz has reorganized this collection to benefit schools in our service area based on goals, wish lists and their own efforts to collect the labels and box tops.

Labels for Education has been in place for 41 years and has provided $114 million in merchandise to participating schools. This began with Campbell Soup Company and has expanded to Pepperidge Farm, Swanson, Bic, Post and Pace. These labels accumulate as points for art supplies, athletic equipment and academic supplies.

Box Tops was started in 1996 by General Mills and includes Green Giant, Hefty, Hanes, Progresso, Scott, Boise, Ziploc and Land O’ Lakes. Box top coupons are worth $.10 each, and the cash can be used for anything the kids need: playground equipment, field trips, books. A school can earn up to $20,000 with these little cardboard coupons.

At the moment there is a container at Suite L in the commercial center in SaddleBrooke. The SBCO office is open Monday through Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Emilie is getting permission to have other drop off points in SB and at the Ranch. Surely you must use one of the above products! Cut off the label or box top and begin saving them. Do note, there are expiration dates on the box tops.

For 1,600,000 points a school could get a four-door minivan! You can make a difference!
