A Message from Jeff Eldred, Box Tops Collection Coordinator
We have wrapped up the 2017-2018 School Season Box Tops Collection. Between the two collections, we raised over $950 for our school! All those little box tops can really add up! I give my sincere thanks to all in the Hollymead School Community who participated; our success is due to YOU!!! You can always continue to send them in during the “downtime” in preparation for the 2018-2019 collection. Until next Fall, all the best!
