Box Tops For Education

Opportunities to Support Literacy are Everywhere!

In 2008, Friends began collecting Box Tops For Education ( to support Rio Rancho’s public schools.  This easy, no-additional-cost activity means hundreds of dollars for our schools.

When visiting Loma Colorado Main Library, simply deposit “Box Tops For Education” box tops (“coupons”) in the large specially marked container in our Friends’ Shop bookstore.  Throughout the year, when the container is filled, we distribute these coupons to Rio Rancho’s public schools.  The schools then redeem these box top coupons towards books, computer equipment, etc.  Each redeemed box top equates to 10 cents.


Everyone probably purchases at least one product monthly with this blue, black, red, and white square or rectangular “Box Tops For Education” symbol.  These appear on the cartons or wrappers of numerous products, from many brands.  Products include apparel, baking & bakeware, cereal, food storage, frozen foods, meals & sides, paper products, produce, refrigerated & dairy, school & office supplies, snacks & juice, tableware, waste bags, and more!

Join us as we support Rio Rancho public schools!  See you at our Friends’ Shop bookstore!
