Box Tops for McCurdy Charter School
By STEVEN E. LOVATO
Did you know that the top of your cereal box may be worth money for local schools? The Box Tops program is one of the largest school earnings loyalty program with over 80,000 K-8 schools participating. You may have seen the logo on products such as Cheerios, Betty Crocker Cake Mix and Hamburger Helper. Each of those Box Tops is worth 10¢ each when cut out and given to the participating school. The Box Tops earnings are then sent out twice a year (December and April) via check to the participating school.
The McCurdy Charter School here in Española is one of those participating schools. So far this school year they have earned an estimated $3,248 with a projected $10,000 goal. Because they are a Charter school, the funding received is heavily contingent upon State Tax revenues, grants, awards and donations. This Box Tops program is an excellent tool utilized by the school in order to support the students in any way, shape or form. If you would like to help the McCurdy Charter School meet their goal this year and the following. Please feel free to cut out the Box Tops from the participating brands and drop them off at the school.
