  • I do. Our school has a volunteer coordinator to keep up moral with it - she offers different competitions a few times a year - any kid who brings in a bag of 50 on Halloween gets a peice of candy, or the student in each grade who brings the most in gets a donut, the family who brings in the most by Christmas gets a pizza gift card, the student who brings in the most by the end of the year gets a gift card to the place of their choice, things like that. We've definitely had a lot more coming in since they had someone volunteer to do it a few years ago.

  • I just started collecting them. I didn't know Campbells had soup labels that go towards education. Thanks for that. I am thinking to go to my daughters school and see if I can find a way to go around to the moms in my daughters classroom and collect them. Never done that but I would love to see if our community can raise alot.

  • if a school doesnt do it - it is because it takes a bit of time to input the labels monthly - if you suggest it to the teacher - please offer to do that for them. box tops have printable pages for parents to keep track of them (like not lose them) - our school just started this year and it has been very successful.

  • AT our school a parent has taken it upon herself to get the word out. She sends out fliers and puts together contests. I think it is super she is doing all of this for the benefit of the school.
