Box Tops For Education
We support Rio Rancho’s public schools by collecting Box Tops For Education (www.boxtops4education.com).
Everyone, with or without children, probably purchases at least one product that displays on the container or wrapping a blue, black, red, and white square or rectangular graphic “Box Tops For Education”. Products from participating companies include but are not limited to baby- & child-care, beverages, disposable tableware, food, paper products, school & office supplies, storage bags & containers, and waste bags!
In 2008, the Friends began collecting these “box tops” in a large container within our Friends’ Shop at Loma Colorado Main Library.
Several times a year we distribute the contents of our filled container to Rio Rancho’s public schools for them to redeem towards books, computer equipment, etc.
With each filled container, this easy no-additional-cost activity means hundreds of dollars for our schools. Each redeemed box top equates to 10 cents!
