While my children are not in school yet, I know how important it is for our schools to have the best to provide for our children.
With Teacher Appreciation Week, Avery is launching it’s third annual Give Back to Schools promotion starting today, May 7th. This online promotion will give individuals the chance to help win cash and prizes for your favorite school.
This year, Avery will award the top 25 schools with the most online votes, in a tier-based structure, and 10 randomly selected schools, based on a threshold of votes received.
The top five school with the most online public votes will each receive $10,000 (retail value) worth of Avery office products and school supplies of their selection, 25,000 Bonus Box Tops coupons (redeemable for cash by schools) and ten $100 gift cards to be split among the teachers for purchase of additional classroom supplies; the school with the most votes overall will receive an in-school donation presentation. The next 25 schools with the most votes will each receive 10,000 Bonus Box Tops coupons (redeemable for cash by schools).
Communities, students, families and school supporters (ages 18 and older) can vote for their favorite K-8 school beginning today at avery.com/giveback.
The Avery Give Back to Schools™ program is one of the ways Avery Office and Consumer Products supports its belief that a solid education is the cornerstone of a strong community. To enable children to receive the education that they need and deserve,Avery provides financial and in-kind support to children, teachers and schools through programs such as Box Tops for Education®.
Since my children are not in school yet, I decided I wanted to help out my little brothers’ school and had then opportunity to send $1000 worth of school supplies to Madrid Junior High School. This donation will include things such as binders, glue sticks, hi-liters, sticky notes, and more for the educators to use within their classrooms. I was able to have the products sent directly to a former teacher of mine to use with other teachers for the students at the Junior High. Knowing that educators often spend out of their own pockets for supplies, it especially means alot to me to be able to give back to them.
I have used a variety of Avery Brand products over the years and I think of Avery as a household name when it comes to school-related supplies.
Between now and September 14, 2012, be sure to vote every day for your school to win in the Give Back to Schools Promotion!
