NEW SHARON – Cape Cod Hill School has recently launched its 2006-2007 Box Tops for Education fundraising campaign. This year the school has set a goal of earning $500 through Box Tops to purchase a funnel ball for the playground.

Box Tops for Education, a school fundraising program sponsored by General Mills, is now in its 10th year. Box Tops has helped America’s schools raise more than $175 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 through everyday activities like buying groceries, shopping online and making purchases with a credit card. Schools can earn up to $60,000 a year.

Those who would like to help can collect box tops from participating products and send them to Cape Cod Hill School, “Attention Rebecca Lemieux, box tops coordinator,” at 516 Cape Cod Hill Road, New Sharon, 04955. People can also sign up on the box tops Web site at www.boxtops4education.com and designate Cape Cod Hill as the school they wish to support.
