Green Giant Fresh Gives Back Through Box Tops For Education Program

Salinas, CA — Green Giant™ Fresh, the only produce brand featuring Box Tops for Education™, contributes every day to k-8 schools across America through their participation in the Box Tops For Education program. The company passed the whopping million dollar milestone in 2014 and currently is at a total contribution of over $1.3 million.

“We started the program in produce because we wanted to make a difference where it really matters—with our kid’s educations and their futures,” said Green Giant Fresh CEO, Jamie Strachan. “We know how much this money is needed to supplement classroom budgets, so we began offering products that feature a 10 cent Box Tops clip that is redeemable by their local schools,” Strachan continued.

We all know many teachers spend their own money out of pocket for supplies to help make the classroom experience better for their students. Not only are our nation’s teachers underpaid for the essential role they play in the development of our children—and the value they bring to their communities—but spending their own hard-earned money to enhance their already significant contribution is the very definition of above and beyond.

The good news is Box Tops for Education can—and does—help! This school earnings loyalty program is one of America’s largest, and contributes 10 cents for every Box Tops clip submitted to participating K-8 schools nationwide. There are over 80,000 schools participating in this program and they can use the money earned from Box Tops to buy whatever they need for their classrooms and schools. That kind of flexibility helps schools use donated monies in the best possible way to meet their unique needs.

Toro Park (K-3) School in Salinas, Calif. Principal Carissa E. said “We use our Box Top money for assemblies. Last year we had an assembly on wild life conservation and another that promoted technology and music. The Box Tops program helps us to bring the curriculum to life by providing the funds to pay for these assemblies.”
