Each school year from Nov. through Feb., the North Caldwell Partnership for Education (NCPE) runs a drive to collect Box Tops for Education.
Box Tops are little coupons that can be found on the packaging of many household and food items. Each one is worth ten cents which doesn’t seem like a lot, but they add up quickly. Surprising how many can be found on items used daily. General Mills created the program back in 1996 as a way to help support education and benefit America’s schools. Essentially it’s a way for the schools to earn “free” money.
When the drive was over this year, the class from Grandview School and the class from Gould School who submitted the most box tops were treated to an ice cream party to celebrate all of their hard work. Gelotti of Caldwell was generous enough to sponsor both parties by donating the ice cream.
To support the North Caldwell schools by clipping Box Tops for Education, drop them off in the container labeled Box Tops for Education at Borough Hall.
