Box Tops
You don't need to wait for the holidays to contribute to D60 PTA.  By purchasing everyday items you already planned to purchase - like cereals, granola bars, paper products, pasta, snacks and more - you can be raising funds for our school.

The way the Box Tops program works is that Box Tops has a list of participating brands and when you buy those brands/products, you would then cut out and turn in the Box Top logo to your school office or homeroom teacher, and PTA turns those in for cash value for our school. 

Now it's easier than before, because Box Tops is transitioning over to digital Box Tops:  Just download the Box Tops app, scan your receipt,  and eligible purchases will automatically be identified, and a portion of the purchase will be sent to our school - just like that!
