Back to school is upon us and Walmart has asked me to share with you some of the great programs they’ve got going on that you can participate in to support your local schools.
I started out by heading out to my local Walmart and picking up some great products that qualified for the programs:
I got cake and frosting for Buddy’s birthday cupcakes (his “friend” party is tomorrow). We picked up some cereal since the kiddos love it not only for breakfast but as an afternoon snack, and then stocked up on some soups for Yankee Bill to take for his work lunches. Normal, everyday purchases–but they will help give cash to my local school!
There are three different programs that you can participate in, simply by buying the products that you already know and love like I did:
Box Tops for Education
Box Tops for Education has been helping schools for 17 years and during that time has given away $500 million towards schools. Last year alone the program gave away $70 million. Each Box Top turned into a school is redeemed for $0.10 donation. To make it even better, this year Walmart is running a campaign where they are giving away free Box Tops for everyone that likes the Walmart Facebook Wall! Walmart is also doing a special 4x Box Tops with General Mills during the Back-to-School period. Specially marked 4x Box Top products (over 100) can be redeemed for $0.40 at their school.
To find out more information about the Box Tops for Education program, check out the Box Tops for Education website.
Kellogg’s has an exclusive Scholastic Books program with Walmart this Back-to-School season. For every 2 Kellogg’s products purchased at Walmart, a customer can redeem the codes on those products for a $5 coupon for a Scholastic Book. Walmart is also running special promotion on their Facebook page that allows you to redeem a scholastic code for liking the special Walmart Facebook Page.

Labels for Education
The Labels for Eduation program was started by Campbell’s almost 30 years ago. Labels you send into school help you school buy equipment. This year Campbells and Dannon teamed up to designate some products with special bonus Labels for Education points at Walmart during the Back-to-School season.

I had already purchase several qualifying Box Tops for Education eligible products-but hey, my school can always use more. . . so of course I went ahead and visited the Walmart Facebook App for Box Tops for Education to get the extra code for my school. It was pretty easy–you just go to the Box Tops for Education App and then clicked on”Claim our eBox Tops”.
I clicked on “Register Now” and filled out the form. You do have to give your full address, birthdate and such–and then there is a box to do a search for your school. Mine popped up right away. Hit submit one more time and you are done!
