Box Tops For Education

Lowell PTA continues to raise funds by collecting and redeeming Box Tops For Education that are found on hundreds of your favorite products – from groceries to school supplies to underwear!

Each Box Top is worth 10 cents to our school, so check all boxes and wrappers before you put them in the recycling bin. New products are constantly being added and as of press time include: Avery, Hefty, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Scott, Hamburger Helper, Green Giant, Land O Lakes, Ziploc, Hanes and more!! Cut out the Box Tops with the expiration date intact, and send them in to your child’s teacher. (Keeping a snack size baggie and scissors in a kitchen drawer makes it easy to collect them!) Please check expiration dates before turning in the Box Tops – those dates really do matter. Ask neighbors and relatives to save box tops for our school, too!

A way to earn Box Tops for Lowell before actually clipping any of them is to register your Ralphs Loyalty Card at That way, our PTA earns Bonus Box Tops electronically when eligible products are purchased, and then we earn 10 cents again when the actual Box Top is turned in!

Are you thinking that a 10 cent Box Top isn’t worth finding, cutting out and turning in? Think again: Lowell PTA has earned $10,000 since 2004 – one 10-cent Box Top at a time!
