Help support Box Top Drive

Dear Editor:

Do you know about “Box Tops for Education”? These little hot-pink logos with a yellow pencil in the center can be found on many foods and office supplies that you already buy. Each one is worth 10 cents when your local school redeems it.

Last year, Basalt Elementary School received more than $1,600 from the Box Tops collection drive. The money we raised is distributed to our extra-curricular teachers (art, P.E., music, library, Spanish) to help them buy supplies for their classes. School funding has been cut, and we need the community’s support more than ever.

City Market in El Jebel is helping us with our Box Top Drive – when you purchase Box Top items, simply tear off the logos and place them in the collection box at the customer service desk on your way out. You could also give them to a BES student to turn into the classroom. This is a year-long project – please look for the Box Tops on your groceries every week and put them in the City Market collection box.

Thanks so much for supporting our school!
