Hickory Hills PTA

every Child; one Voice


ONGOING FUNDRAISING FOR HHPTA—IT ALL ADDS UP!   Please participate in these easy ways to raise needed funds to support our students and teachers.


Box Tops are on so many products.  By purchasing Box Top products, clipping the coupons and sending them to school, we earn cash that can be used for our school.  Each Box Top is worth 10 cents.  This is something friends, neighbors, and relatives can help us collect. 

We can earn cash for our school online too.  You can shop online through the Box Tops website and earn eBox Tops credits on all your purchases.  Just click the “EARN” tab at the top of www.btfe.com and scroll down to “SHOP MARKETPLACE”.  Any eBox Tops you earn will be automatically credited to Hickory Hills Elementary.  Each eBox Top is 10 cents. 

If you shop at Sam’s Club, you can earn 70 eBoxTops when you purchase three participating products in a single transaction.  Save your receipt.  Text or email your receipt to samsclub@btfereceipts.com or visit http://apps.tpgrewards.com/generalmills3/ to upload your receipt. 

Our Box Tops goal is to earn $2400 this year.  To learn more and track our progress, register at www.btfe.com and register to receive the newsletter.  You can receive information and coupons to save on Box Tops products.  Here is a link to participating products:  http://bit.ly/ParticipatingProducts.


BOX TOP COLLECTION DATES:   1).  OCTOBER 14, 2014  and 2). FEBRUARY 2015.



Scrip is a simple way families can help raise money for our school without spending any more money than you usually would.  Scrip means “substitute money.”  For each gift card purchased, Scrip gives back a percentage to our school so we can earn cash rebates for our students and school without spending additional money.  It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work.  Visit www.shopwithscrip.com to register.  It is very easy.  And to make it easier, they have Prestopay so you can order gift cards and pay online.  It is secure and very easy.  When you use Prestopay, your order and payment is automatic so you don’t need to get payment to the school.

This rebate program is a simple and effective way participants can help raise money without spending any more money than you normally would. Participants can buy gift cards through Scrip from a wide variety of vendors that are commonly used by most households. Scrip then gives our school back a rebate or percentage of the purchased gift card.

Scrip is great for frequently shopped stores (Walgreen’s, Lowe’s, Starbucks, Old Navy, Bass Pro) and restaurants.  It’s also a great place to get teacher appreciation gifts. The opportunities are endless!  Contact Brandy Hickman via e-mail at brandylaneh@sbcglobal.net for information or to enroll.   Our Scrip goal is to earn $1500 this year.
