Area schools take part in label project

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Campbell's labels for education and boxtops for education are two programs most elementary schools participate in where they earn products or equipment for individual schools by submitting the UPC part of Campbell products or the Boxtop coupon from General Mills products.

Campbell's is the "Parent" company for Pepperidge, Ragu and Campbell. Other companies that have joined the labels for education program include Post Cereal, Bic, Avery and Pop Secret.

Boxtop coupons are found on General Mills cereal, Huggies, Betty Crocker, and some notebook binders.

The best and easiest way to help schools earn points is to place the UPC or Boxtop coupon in a ziplock baggie and put a child's name, grade level and teacher's name on the baggie and send it to school in the backpack.

The elementary school will have a collection bin for children to place the baggie in so schools can receive credit for points collected.

The Linking Education to Adults, Adolescents and Preschoolers (LEAAP) Center also participates in the Campbell's Labels for Education program, but the Boxtop program only includes schools with grad levels Kindergarten through high school.

The following is a list of Clay Community Schools that take part in Labels for Education:

Clay City Elementary School,

East Side Elementary School,

Forest Park Elementary School,

Jackson Township Elementary School,

Meridian Elementary School,

North Clay Middle School (Boxtops only) and

Staunton Elementary School
