Box Tops

  • If you’ve clipped and contributed Box Tops to RCLS in the past, please be aware that the program is changing its method of crediting awards to schools. The new and improved Box Tops program no longer requires package clipping. Instead, a Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products, and instantly add Box Tops to your school's earnings online.

    You can now download the Box Tops app. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label. If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10¢ each for your school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online.
