There are two programs available through Box Tops 4 Education:

FCES receives 10 cents per box top from General Mills.  Box Tops is changing to a mobile app. This is a transition year where you can both 1) cut out the box top and/or 2) use the mobile app to scan your store receipt which will automatically add Box Tops products to FCES PTSA.  The receipts will be good for 14 days for use on the app. We still will be collecting cut out box tops in the classrooms. Products other than cereal are: Annie’s, Paper-Mate Pens, Ziploc, Nature Valley and lots of others. https://www.boxtops4education.com/

 


 

Don't throw away those receipts from Fall City's Farmhouse Market! Collect your receipts and turn them into the Box Tops/Farmhouse Market envelope in your child's classroom and PTSA will receive 1% of total purchases through the market's giveback program.  Click here to visit the Farmhouse Market website.

MATCHING!

Companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, and McGraw- Hill offer a variety of programs in which they pay a dollar amount to the school for each volunteer hour you work and/or match dollar per dollar on donations you make. Contact your community outreach department at your place of work to see if any matching program exists and how this can benefit FCES.
