Box Tops!

We will continue to accept physical box tops until there are no more, provided that they are still in date. You may already have noticed the changes on the packaging from products that you typically buy. Moving forward, please install and use the app. It is very easy to use, and we hope to still be able to count on this as a way to make money for our school. For that we will need your help! Please note below, from just one receipt, $2.90! Exponentially we can really make this work!
