The United Family helps shoppers support local schools

Provided by The United Family

Today The United Family™ and General Mills kicked off the Box Tops for Education program, allowing guests to support local schools by purchasing groceries and back to school goods. The program will run through Sept. 30.

"As school budgets continue to be cut, we understand how vital it is to support local schools in our trade areas," said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for The United Family. "Purchasing any of the more than 240 participating Box Tops for Education products is an easy, convenient way we offer guests the opportunity to help their schools succeed."

All United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos guests who purchase five participating Box Tops for Education products will receive 20 bonus Box Tops via rebate. Additionally, General Mills will provide participating guests with the opportunity to enter a drawing for a chance to win a $250 store gift card, and their desired school will be entered for a chance to win an additional 5,000 bonus Box Tops.

General Mills pays 10 cents per Box Top coupon redeemed for up to $20,000 per school, per year. Since its inception in 1996, Box Tops for Education has donated more than $525 million to American schools.
