Fundraisers

Throughout this year, St. Patrick’s School will be collecting Box Tops and Coca Cola product codes to raise money for our school! When you buy Coca Cola products go to the Coca Cola Website, search for St. Patrick School, or type in the zip code 68507, scroll down to the one in Lincoln NE and then enter the Coca Cola product code under the bottle cap on your computer screen or scan it from your phone. The first time you do this you will need to make an account with your email or Facebook profile. The amount Coca Cola gives to the school per code is listed in this tool kit.


Box Tops are going digital! You can download the app Box Tops for Education, register and select St Patrick’s School, and then scan eligible receipts containing Box Tops products. Like before, it’s 10 cents per Box Top and there are also bonus earning opportunity through the app. You can also earn money for online purchases by forwarding your email receipt to (Enable Javascript to see the email address). Here’s a list of online retailers that are eligible: Instacart, Jet.com, SamsClub.com, Shipt, Target.com, Target Pick-Up/Drive-Up, Walmart Grocery, Walmart.com.

 

There are still traditional Box Tops on products as they are being phased out and these are still eligible to be clipped and dropped off at school until they expire. You can also double dip during this transitional phase by both clipping the Box Tops and scanning the receipts. Some brands are not yet participating in the digital program and these will need to be clipped as usual including Hefty, Kleenez, Progresso, Reyolds, Scott, Ziploc and Finish.  Look for the traditional pink Box Top to determine if it needs to be clipped. The digital Box Tops are blue and red.
