Before you throw away those soup cans and Coke bottles ...

Fundraising for CES is easy with MyCokeRewards, Box Tops for Education, Labels for Education and Tyson Labels.


Drink Coke products? Register at MyCokeRewards, enter the codes from your Coke product lids, and then donate to Cottonwood. Or make it even easier and send your collected lids with your child to school and they will be entered for you. You can find the codes on the inside of the 12 and 24 packs of all Coke products and inside specially marked lids.


Eat soup, make cakes, buy Ziplock baggies? The list goes on and on, so be sure to check your soup cans, cake mixes, trash bag boxes, etc. for Box Tops for Education, Labels for Education and Tyson Labels. Simply cut and trim the labels on the dotted line and send them to school on collection day. Our collection day for the fall is October 14. We will have another collection in the spring. Prizes for students with the most labels collected include lunch with Mrs. Rooks and an extra recess!
