Box Tops

We are just over $100 so far!  Let’s try to get to $500!  We need you!  Box Tops are a great way to give back to the school by just cutting Box Tops off the products that you buy at the grocery store.  This week is National Box Tops Week. This year, we are hoping that our school can collect over $2,000 worth of Box Tops.  All money raised by Box Tops goes right back to the students at Coolidge School!  In October, we will begin drawing names of students who return box tops to win a special prize.

During the clothing drive we invite you to drop off textile goods to our school to be weighed and donated. Goods may include but are not limited to: sheets, bedding, clothing, curtains, tablecloths. Our school will earn 20 cents a pound for everything donated. During the timeline of the fundraiser, we will also have a one-day drop-off of large items on Sunday, October 29th from 11am to 1pm. On the drop-off day we will also accept toys, books, and small household goods. Electronics will not be accepted. We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help Diane Betti and Jenn Luke collect the items for the day on Sunday October 29th. Please contact Jenn at jluke88@gmail.com if you can help.
