DevelopmentRewards Programs

 

Each year, Community Coffee sponsors its Cash for Schools contest.  The contest runs from the start of school through January 31st. Schools earn money by collecting UPC labels from Community® brand products, including coffee and tea products. Schools allocate the money earned toward initiatives and projects such as new computers, textbooks, equipment, whiteboards, and other educational necessities. The program is open to local public and private schools from Pre-K through 12th grade.

To ignite participation, SAS holds a grade-level UPC collection contest beginning with the first day of school.  All Community Coffee UPCs should be submitted in an envelope or ziploc bag labeled with the student's grade that should receive credit.  Fifth grade won last year's grade-level UPC collection contest by collecting 8,295 UPCs! They were treated to Mary Lee donuts and Community Coffee hot chocolate.  

Last year, 824 schools participated in the Community Cash for Schools® program and earned over $368,000.  Public and private schools across the area have earned millions of dollars for their local programs through the Community Cash for Schools® program.  St. Aloysius School placed sixth in the company's nationwide Cash for Schools contest and was presented a check in the amount of $2,960.00!  These earnings will be used toward a more energy efficient ASI upgrade for our campus-wide system and science laboratory projects.

We collect BoxTops for Education labels and Campbell’s Labels for Education

                   

We do not have a grade-level contest for these items, but we will strive to collect over 50,000 BoxTops labels this year.  Last year, SAS earned $3,379.30 through BoxTops for Education which offset costs for Youth Legislature participation, math tournament fees, and professional development conferences.  We earn points rather than money through the Campbell’s program.  With our points , we have ordered items such as interactive parachutes, sets of Lemon Twists, and playground balls for the P.E. department. 

      

We participate in the My Coke Rewards points program.  Here is how you can help:

1. Purchase favorite Coca-Cola drinks to get codes (under caps/on boxes)
2. Go to mycokerewards.com/schools and register if you aren’t a member.
3. Enter your codes to get points.
4. Find our school and enter the points you would like to donate.

With our My Coke Rewards points, we ordered two ball carts for the P.E. department.

 

When you shop online, over the phone or at your neighborhood Office Depot store, please request for your purchase to be applied to St. Aloysius School.  5% of your purchase will be directed to our school which allows us to purchase paper, folders, ink, and office supplies.
