Box tops are such an easy way for the school’s to make money, that is way the Milano Elementary PATCH Club is collecting the Educational Box Tops again this year. You can find them on certain food and soup labels. Just turn them in at the school office or your student can turn them in to their teacher. The school gets money back when they send them in–the more labels, the more money for our students.
