Box Tops for Education
Janet Kubelka has been collecting Box Tops for Education to support the Pagosa Springs Elementary School but the actual box top stamps are being phased out. Instead, the program is now using a smartphone application to find and credit eligible products.
To install your application, go to your app store (google play store for android or the apple store for apple phones) and search for “Box Tops for Education”. Once you find it, download and install it just like you would any other phone application. The app is free. After it’s installed, follow the prompts to set up your sign on using your email address and select “Pagosa Springs Elementary School” as your school to support. Now you are set up and can scan your grocery store receipts and email them from the application to the program. They will search for eligible products and notify you via email if any were found on your receipt. If you have digital receipts like Walmart Pay, there are instructions inside the application on how to forward those receipts for examination.
Every time an eligible product is found, the school is credited. Last year, Pagosa Springs Elementary School earned $700 from this program.
If you are unable or unwilling to install the application, bring your receipts to the guild meetings and Janet will scan them for you. Until they are gone, you can also continue to cut the stamps from the tops of boxes and bring those to Janet. If you need help with any of this, contact Janet at 970-382-1406 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pop Top Tabs
Ida Theys is collecting tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. These are the tabs found on soda cans, pet food, and other canned goods that help you to open the item without a can opener. Please place a jar or baggie next to your sink and as you prep your meals just pop them in the bag and bring it to a meeting when you have a bunch. You can contact Ida with any questions at email@example.com.
