Box Tops and Tyson Project A+

Help our school earn funds by submitting codes or coupons off of participating products!  Check out the great lists below!


Box Top$ for Education


Box Tops coupons are located on hundreds of General Mills products. Simply cut out the coupons (preferably on the dotted lines) and submit them into school. Each coupon is worth 10 cents which quickly adds up. For every 50 Box Tops your child submits they will earn a small prize to be passed out during lunchtime a couple of times a month. When submitting Box Tops please make sure your child’s name as well as teacher and grade are clearly written on the envelope. Also, no expired Box Tops can be used so please check before you submit. A great way to collect as many Box Tops as you can is to get family and friends involved. Make them aware that your child’s school is collecting and ask them to save as well. Grandmas from across the country have mailed in Box Tops to help out their grandchildren at Blackberry. It’s an easy fundraiser that has earned Blackberry Creek thousands of dollars. Please spread the word and start collecting today!  To view the list, please click to visit their website.
