Thank you, for a Great Year!
Dear Gator Run families,
The Box Tops committee would like to thank all of you for your help in making this the most successful Box Tops year ever. We’ve raised $3,600 for Gator Run since last May. All that money came from clipping those tiny Box Tops found on everyday items sitting around your home. It’s amazing to see how 10 cents a top can really add up for our school.
Please continue collecting Box Tops during summer break. You can make it a family affair by encouraging other family members, like grandparents, aunts or uncles, to collect Box Tops as well. Be sure to check common brands in your house, like Cheerios, Old El Paso, Yoplait, Land O’ Lakes, Ziplock, Kleenex & Avery, for Box Tops containing the 10 cent symbol. Just neatly clip them around the dotted line & place in a plastic bag for safe keeping. This will give your child’s class a leg up when the grade wide contests begin once again.
Not sure what Box Tops is all about? Then check out the Box Tops website at http://boxtops4education.com
. You’ll find a list of participating products, coupons for popular Box Tops products, ways to earn points for Gator Run by shopping online, and other Box Tops contest opportunities.
Perhaps next year we’ll be able to raise over $4,000 for Gator Run with your continued support in turning your household “trash” into cash.
Have a fantastic summer!
