Giving Back to Schools

July 4, 2016 14 By EngineerMommy

There are a lot of lessons I try to teach my daughters on a daily basis: the importance of kindness, the importance of selflessness, the importance of compassion, and so much more. One of these important lessons I try to instill in my kids is the importance of giving back! With Box Tops for Education®, giving back to the schools in our community is easier than ever!

Giving back to the community can appear in many different forms.

  • Volunteering at a local school or hospital is an easy way to show some support for the organizations in your community. Even a few hours per week is often enough to make a difference!
  • Donating to charity is another beneficial way to help noble organizations fulfill their worthwhile missions. Even small donations can add up quickly!
  • Participating in food drives is an effortless way to help out those less fortunate. Submitting just a few cans or non-perishable food items takes very little money & effort.
  • One of the easiest ways I’ve found to give back to the community is by collecting Box Tops for Education®. Collecting these is a very easy way to give back to my community’s schools.

I simply looked around my kitchen and quickly found two products that had the box tops!

I like to store mine in a clear, zippered plastic bag. After I’ve collected a bunch, I upload them to the site. I love how easy & convenient it is to submit them online!
