supervalu family stores offer bonus box tops

if you have heard anything about chicago education, you may have heard that a budget crisis at the state level is affecting the amount of money chicago schools will receive for the next year.  this is affecting staff numbers, class sizes, even whether or not my daughter will go to kindergarten for a half day or a full day.  i am trying not to let the rumors through me into a panic but it has been hard lately.

zoe's school does a phenomenal job fund raising.  unfortunately, our current financial situation precludes me from participating in a number of their events and activities.

one thing i can do proudly and consistently is collect box tops.  we regularly eat many of the foods that have box tops on them.  i know it is a very small thing:  each box top is only worth  10 cents for my school, but at least it is one way i can give back while doing something we are already doing.

now, the supervalu family of stores (acme, albertsons, cub, farm fresh and jewel-osco) are making it even easier to participate in the program.  together with box tops for education, they have created a website that not only tracks box tops contributions and the school's redemption.  they have also made available recipes, coupons, store promotions and more.

to top it off, now through may 31, supervalu stores and box tops for education are offering us a chance to win 50,000 bonus box tops for our schools.  just register here and click the link to the 50,000 bonus box tops sweepstakes.*  you will automatically receive 5 bonus box tops just for signing up.

if that isn't incentive enough, you can leave a comment here to win a $25 american express gift card that you can use at your favorite supervalu store.  first, go register at the supervalu website.  then come back here and tell me you did and tell me box top products you would buy with your $25.  i will choose a winner using random.org on may 31.  usa residents only please.

*Please note that the sweepstakes is void in some states.  Visit www.GrowingLocalLearning.com and view the sweepstakes´ official rules for more details.

i received my own american express gift card as a thank you for giving you this information.  the information found here and the giveaway were all provided by supervalu and general mills through myblogspark.

  1. I am registered at the Supervalu website. I would purchase a variety of cereals, such as Lucky Charms, Cheerios, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We love cereal in our household and go through a lot of it!
