Box Tops for Education and a Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago, I went at my  usual time to help in one of the second grade classes at Braden’s school.  Due to some changes in schedules that day, I ended up working in the office instead.  I had an interesting chat with one of the office staff about Box Tops for Education.  I had commented about how Braden likes to bring them in, but my husband doesn’t really see the point since they are only worth about 10 cents.

But our school has raised over $1600 so far this year with Box Tops for Education.

You can find Box tops on many General Mills products, including the Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Dessert Mixes and the Chex cereals.  They can also be found on many non-food products like Kleenex and Ziplocs.

Currently, Box Tops and Kroger stores are partnering together to get you even more Box Tops for your school.  All you have to do is go to and sign up to get bonus Box Tops and custom offers for more bonus Box Tops loaded onto your Kroger card.  Unfortunately, the majority of the bonuses are not gluten-free.

General Mills, through MyBlogSpark, would like to offer one Delightfully Gluten Free reader with a $25 gift card to the Kroger family of stores.  Leave a comment about how the Box Tops program has affected you, or how it would have been helpful for you as a child.

This giveaway will end on Monday, February 22nd, 2009, at 9:00 pm central.

    My kids went to St. Joseph School, a Catholic parochial school, from 1980-2002, I had children there and the Box Tops were always a popular item to collect for the school. Every little thing can make a difference!

    I have collected box tops since my youngest was in Elementary, now he is High School, it helped earn valuable equipment for the playground that was really needed for the new Elementary School,and the Intermediate School.
    I still keep all of them, it’s like throwing away money if you dont save them. we have a new school opening and I will give all of my latest to them 🙂
