I can hardly believe it but Carter will be starting kindergarten in just a few weeks. His school is really unique in that it offers several orientation activities to get the kids used to the environment and to meet some of the kids and teachers before the first day. I’ve found it also got me excited about his school and the programs they offer. One way I’ve found to help his new school is through the Tyson Project A+ program. It gives donations for schools similar to other programs like Box Tops for Education, but WAY easier, and also gives a lot more money to the schools. Each label is worth 24 cents. That adds up quickly! The labels look similar to this:
Besides the obvious monetary benefits to this program, it’s super easy to enroll and send in your labels. It’s just 4 easy click buttons to look up and/or enroll your kids’ school. All you do is go to the Tyson Project A+ site, look up your school (or if it’s not there, you can enroll it easily), and that’s it.
When you have at least 100 labels (Tyson has great resources to help you spread the word like tips, PR release letters, and clip art for collection boxes) all you do is print out a quick form and mail them in. Tyson then mails the school a check. For some cute collection box ideas, check out their Pinterest board.
What makes this program awesome also, are the products you find the Tyson Project A+ label on. We picked up a bunch of frozen Tyson products at Walmart, but the one I was most excited to try was the Sweet Asian Flavored Chicken Thighs Fillets. I cooked them in the toaster oven so the kitchen didn’t get super hot in August (you can also microwave them). You’re really just heating them through because they’re already cooked.
Paired with brown rice and veggies, it’s a complete meal, done in minutes.
It’s great to have a company whose products I already buy (my boy LOVES their dinosaur nuggets) give back to my community in this way. I hope you’ll consider helping your kids’ school out too!
