Last Day for Extra Box Tops at Sam's Club and a giveaway





Those of you who know me personally, may also know that my mom is the school nurse at one of the poorest schools in our city. She personally heads up the Box Top for education collection program to help bring programs to these kids that they likely would not have otherwise. We love helping her in her effort by donating the box tops we collect and also by helping her to count them out every few months. Of course, you do not need to have a child in a poor school district in order for their school to benefit from the program. Box Tops for education are for all schools that like "free" money for projects and programs and in today's economy, almost every school needs this extra help. If you do not have a child in school, I am sure you could just drop the labels off at any participating local school and they would be glad to have them. If you are really having trouble finding a school that needs them, let me know and I would be happy to accept them for my mom or give you the school address so you could send them to her directly.

So where do you find these box tops? Right now, Sam's Club even has General Mills packages that have 6 box tops on them, but you have to hurry as that ends tonight. Other products, including General Mills, will still carry the regular, typically one, Box Tops on their products.

***Giveaway***
I was given an upgrade to a Sam's Club Plus membership and a $25 gift card to assist in writing this post. I also have an additional $25 gift card to Sam's Club for one of my readers. If you do not have a Sam's Club near you and/or do not have/need/want a membership, the gift card makes a great gift and/or it is also accepted at WalMart. To enter (mandatory entry): tell me what items you like to buy at Sam's Club. For us, we love to buy the Go-Gurt yogurt...and they come with Box Tops.
You can earn bonus entries (one entry for each that you do) by:
- subscribing to my blog
- following my blog
- sharing this giveaway via your blog or other social networking site.

Please leave an extra comment for each bonus entry. The winner will be chosen on September 8th and they will have 48 hours to get back to me or a new winner will be chosen. I will choose the winner at some point in the evening of the 8th and entries will be accepted up until the drawing. Good luck!

***Disclaimer***
Sam's Club and General Mills provided me with a Sam's Club membership Plus upgrade, a $25 Sam's Club gift card and the information for this post, as well as the $25 Sam's Club gift card for the giveaway, through My Blog Spark. As always, my opinion remains my own and no monetary compensation was received.

  1. What fun that would be to win the gift card. We usually purchase a lot of frozen foods there and would use it for that!
