LABELS AND RECEIPTS

Each year, our schools receive thousands of dollars in free money through the collection of labels and receipts that would otherwise get thrown in the trash. The money is primarily used for teachers to purchase educational supplies for their classrooms. This simple fundraiser has allowed us to move away from product sales such as wrapping paper or chocolate bars.

Please participate and encourage others to help us out by saving labels and receipts from participating vendors, or using Amazon Smile when shopping online. It only takes a few seconds and these efforts, over time, amount to considerable sums of free money!

Place labels and UPCs in the collection bins at each school, or drop them at any school office for delivery to our wonderful volunteers who will count them and submit them according to program guidelines.

  • Clip and save the Tyson Project A+™ labels from any of the participating Tyson products

SPARTAN STORE UPC CODES
Cash for Labels makes it simple to raise money! When you buy Spartan brand products, remove and turn in the UPC from the labels. Each UPC equates to $.02, so a bundle of 1,000 Spartan brand UPC symbols earns $20. Our volunteers will consolidate the contributions into bundles, you may turn them a few at a time.


OLESON’S GROCERY RECEIPTS
Turn in your Oleson’s receipts to any school, and help fund an 8th Grade student’s trip to Washington, DC! Write the child’s name, advisory teacher and grade on the back. Each receipt is worth 1 percent of the total spent. If no student is designated, the receipt will be turned in on behalf of the current class of 8th graders.


AUNT MILLIE’S BREAD UPC CODES
