Points all

add up

Thank you to everyone who saves Campbell's, Food Club and Our Family UPCs, General Mills Box Tops and Kemps and Land O' Lakes milk caps for Century School.

Each one is only worth five or 10 cents, but it sure adds up. PTA members cut, count and sort everything that is turned in and then mail them all to the companies that sponsor these programs. This last school year alone, a total of 134,353 UPCs, box tops and milk caps were turned in - for a total of $5,928.98 earned for the school!

The majority of this money goes toward the school's library budget.

So thank you to everyone who saves for our school. Also thanks to Coborn's and J&B for having collection bins at their stores, and to John and Bella Sanders who assist with the cutting and sorting. The PTA will be participating in these programs again next school year, so keep saving!
