Start the New Year by Giving Even More Back to Your Schools

Happy New Year!

I don't know about you all, but one of my goals each year is to give back a little bit more whether it's through donations, my time or other ways. One of the things I find most important to give back to is our community, especially through our schools for our kids.

This is a sponsored article written by Smart Savvy Living written on behalf of Food Lion and Box Tops for Education.

Growing up in a less than wealthy family, I know it can be tough to have much money to spare to help give back to your local schools, though, and especially after the holiday season where we're all feeling a bit of a pinch.

That's why I'm happy to take some time today to talk about the Box Tops for Education program and Food Lion's® Box Tops offer running from 1/7/15 through 1/13/15.

Why I Love the Box Tops for Education Program

I remember Box Tops for Education starting in the 90's back when I was in school myself. We collected them from everyday General Mills® products we used for everything from snacks to dinner.

Having a Pillsbury™ Toaster Strudel™ for breakfast was such a special treat! Fast forward to today, I'm happy to collect them myself and give them to our friends that have children to donate to their schools.

Over 80,000 K-8 schools participate and schools can use the Box Tops cash on whatever they need. If you'd like to become a Box Tops coordinator, just follow the link for more information.
