Richer School Approaches 35,000 Box Top Goal
The Richer Elementary School has pulled in nearly 35,000 box tops as part of a PTO fundraiser.
The Richer School Parent Teacher Organization is closing in on gathering 35,000 box tops towards a fundraising goal of $3,500.
"Box Tops for Education are a great way to raise money for schools and it is as easy as clipping and saving," said Martha Priest, the Richer School Parent Teacher Organization's Activity Chair for Box Tops.
Each box top alone is worth 10 cents, but the organization is quickly approaching its goal of 35,000 box tops to raise $3,5000. The Richer School PTO uses these funds to provide cultural arts for all grade levels as well as to purchase supplies and equipment for the school, said Priest.
Even community businesses are getting involved. Recently, Molly Hipson and Kim Hitchcock, from the Marlborough Savings Bank, came to the Richer School to donate 1140 box tops. With this submission, the Richer PTO is almost at its goal.
