The company’s Box Tops program is partnering with the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) on a project called Committed Parents: Supporting Your Child’s Success. The initiative includes 21,000 printed bilingual “Latino toolkits” that are being distributed to schools and NCLR affiliates to give to parents.
Box Tops will host parental training workshops in Houston, Chicago and Los Angeles, throughout May and June, in schools with large Hispanic populations.
Created in 1996, Box Tops for Education gives families a way to earn cash for their schools by clipping coupons from such brands as Cheerios, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury.
