LIVERMORE – The Livermore Elementary School announces its progress in this year’s Box Tops for Education fund-raising campaign. Earlier this fall, the school set a goal of earning $800 through Box Tops to help provide funding for grants through the SELF organization. The school has earned $366.50 so far toward its goal.

Since 1996 the program, sponsored by General Mills, has helped schools raise more than $100 million to buy the things they need such as library books, school supplies and playground equipment.

The program offers school supporters three ways to earn cash for schools. Everyday activities like buying groceries, shopping online and making purchases with a credit card help schools. Schools can earn up to $60,000 a year.

Clip, the original Box Tops for Education program, helps schools earn cash by clipping tops from participating products. Schools get 10 cents for each tops they redeem. For a list, people can visit boxtops4education.com.

School supporters who sign up online for Box Tops for Education Booster Club gain access to the second way to earn cash for schools, the Box Tops for Education Marketplace. Members can choose from more than 200 participating online stores. Up to 8 percent of each qualifying purchase goes to a designated school.

Third, using the Box Tops for Education Visa card ensures a donation of 1 percent of every purchase to a designated school. Those interested can visit boxtops4education.com details.

People who would like to help the school can collect box tops and send them to the Livermore Elementary School, Attention Linda Gramlich – Box Tops Coordinator, 107 Gibbs Mill Rd., Livermore, ME 04253. They can also join the Box Tops Booster Club or apply for the Box Tops Visa card.
