Pershing Elementary Box Tops

November 17, 2010

Before you throw away that empty cereal box, consider what it could do for our school.

Pershing has already raised $315 through the Box Tops for Education program.Students, staff and community members have collected over 3,000 Box Tops, each earning 10 cents for the school.

To raise money for the school, supporters simply cut out the recognizable Box Tops for Education logo on products they buy, and send them with their student to school.

Box Tops are submitted twice a year, and Pershing has raised the $315 through its first submission. The deadline for the second submission is Feb. 28, and Pershing's original goal was to raise a $500 for the school this year.

A list of participating brands and products is available on the program's Web site,
