Box Tops for Education
Did you know that by purchasing items your family may already use, our school gets free money? Box Tops for Education is a program that supports learning and benefits America’s schools. Pink Box Tops logos can be found on hundreds of different products. Whenever you’re done with a grocery item, take a quick look before tossing the packaging into the recycling or trash bin to be sure there aren’t any Box Tops present. The PTA redeems the Box Tops for cash to use for anything from field trips to after school programs for our students. Each top is worth 10¢ and they really do add up! Last year we earned over $1000!!
Eventually the Box Tops program will become digital-only. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label.
Due to the pandemic, we will only be collecting digital submissions to our program. Keep reading to see how easy it is!
If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Digital Box Tops are still worth 10¢ for your school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online.
You can also earn bonus Box Tops by using the Box Tops App. Simply download the app to find offers.
Recycle for Liberty!
Can In Cash Out Bottle Redemption Center located at 25 North Middletown Road in Nanuet will donate all proceeds to the Liberty Elementary PTA if you drop off your empty NYS deposit bottles and cans.
(Be sure to tell them it's a donation to the Liberty Elementary PTA BEFORE they start counting your bottles.)
DeCicco Family Market
A percentage of your purchase will be donated back to our school when you shop at DeCicco’s Family Markets in New City. Simply provide our school number 617 or the school name Liberty Elementary at check out before your order is complete.

Need gift ideas for the holidays or for end-of-the-year? The Liberty PTA is excited to continue our Amazon Teacher Wish Lists!!
We have asked our amazing teachers to each make a "wish list" of items that they would like to possibly receive as gifts to enhance their classrooms, indoor recess time, and/or overall learning environment.
This is an opportunity for the community to give back to our teachers, past or present. If you’d like to make a teacher’s wish come true, simply visit his or her wish list on Amazon and make a purchase. (see list of links below)
Nothing is better than the feeling of giving. Please check out the lists and feel free to share with others. Let's show our teachers how much we appreciate all that they do for our children, and send them some love from the Liberty family community.
