HOW BOX TOPS WORKS...
CORPORATE INCENTIVESThere are several different ways we - as parents - can help give back to our children's school! Simply by linking our local grocery store incentive cards and Target REDcards, we can send money back to Powell Elementary with little or no effort. This money helps to purchase the technology, books, equipment, and anything else that may be needed for PES.Below you will find easy step-by-step instructions to linking your incentive cards:Food City - Powell Elementary ID: 40663
- Buy products with box tops on them (click the Box Tops icon to go to the page with the list of products)
- Clip the boxtop off the box
- Send the box tops in to school in a baggie or on a collection sheet (see resources). If you can bag them in groups of 50 or 100, that would be very helpful! Just write "50" or "100" on the bag.
