I was compensated by Tyson Foods to produce this post.
Last month I shared information about an easy fundraising opportunity for your child’s school through the Tyson Project A+TM program. You may have even enrolled your child’s school in the program or checked to see if your child’s school is already participating in the program. If so, that’s a fantastic start!
Now it’s time to collect the Tyson Project A+TM program labels found on participating Tyson® products. When I’m making out my grocery list for the week I find myself adding several items from the Tyson Foods product line just so I can collect the labels. The bonus of course is that I get to use the products for quick and easy lunches and after school snacks. Just this week we picked up a bag of Tyson® Any’tizers® Homestyle Chicken Fries to go with some baked fries and steamed broccoli for a kid-friendly lunch with my daughter before she went off to her afternoon pre-school class.
But what do you do with those labels after you’ve clipped them?
The answer is simple … make a label donation box.
This project is very easy, doesn’t require any extra supplies and is a great way to get other parents involved. You can make a donation box for your own home, school classrooms and to share with other students. To get started, all you need is an empty tissue box, construction paper, scissors, double-sided tape (or a glue stick) and Clip Art provided by the Tyson Foods website that can be printed at home.
Cut the construction paper into strips to fit each side of the tissue box and secure the paper wrapping with tape or glue. Use the printable clip art to decorate the box so parents and students can easily identify it as the Tyson Project A+TM program collection box. Don’t forget to cut an opening on top of the box so you can drop labels in.
Finally, start collecting those labels. Remember, each label is worth 24 cents towards the minimum goal of 100 labels for your school.

I’d love to hear from you! Have you started collecting your labels yet?
