Box Tops for Education® for George Elementary

As we have for the past 10 years, Dance and Swing has assisted George Elementary in food and clothing drives.  Now we would like to challenge each and every one of you to do something throughout the year to help. We are asking that you collect and clip Box Tops for Education® from products that you buy, many of which you probably already have in your home and just throw away the packages.

Box Tops for Education® is one of the nation’s largest school fundraising loyalty programs and has been helping schools succeed since 1996. With over 250 participating products, it’s an easy way for schools to earn cash for the things they need. Over 90,000 K-8 schools participate nationwide. Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10¢ and they add up fast!  Schools can use their Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need most, from books to field trips to playgrounds. So far, America’s schools have earned over $525 million from Box Tops…and counting.*

To learn a bit more about Box Tops for Education®, you can go to this link:  and for a complete list of products, there are downloads available to print at

What we at Dance and Swing are challenging everyone to do is to clip and save these Box Tops for Education®.  Just cut them out and put them in an envelope, save them and bring them to us, and we will do the rest.  Or, if you wish, you can mail them directly to George Elementary at 2878 Powell St, Springdale, AR 72764.  We will have a collection box available at all the group classes and social dances. 

So, inspect your boxes, cans, and packaging before you throw it out.  Download and print the list of products and keep it handy.  It only takes a few seconds and can make a big difference for the school.

Do it for the kids!
