Did you know you can find Box Tops on many of the brands you use to make Thanksgiving Dinner, from Potatoes to Cresent rolls.
Remember to Clip those Box Tops and turn them in to school with your child's grade on the baggie or envelope . They really add up!
Thanksgiving is also a great time to collect extra Box Tops from Family and Friends as you gather for the Holiday weekend.
Thank You So Much and Hope Everyone Has a Wonderful Thanksgiving.
