Want to help earn free money for Barton? Here's how...

BoxTops for Education

Traditional BoxTops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout stores. You can still clip and drop them into the plastic barrel on the front counter at the Main Office at Barton.  Every valid BoxTops clip is worth 10¢ for Barton.  BoxTops can be turned in anytime during the school year; we submit them for redemption twice a year, and the next redemption deadline is Nov 1, so turn in your BoxTops today!

Eventually the BoxTops program will become digital-only. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional BoxTops clip to the new BoxTop label.  To redeem a digital BoxTop, download the BoxTops for Education app, register your email address and select Barton Open School. If you see the “No More Clipping” label on a product you purchase, then scan that receipt with the new BoxTops app within 14 days of purchase. Digital BoxTops are still worth 10¢ each for Barton. The app will find participating products purchased on the receipt and instantly add cash to Barton’s earnings online.  No clipping or submissions required!


HolyLand coupons

HolyLand products = money for Barton!   Check the backside of the cardboard labels on HolyLand hummus, baba ghannuj, etc. sold in stores for a certificate that Barton can redeem for 25 cents each.  Clip the certificate and turn it in at the Barton main office, just like you would for a BoxTop - there is a separate basket to collect these labels.  Enjoy some wonderful food, and help Barton raise money at the same time!


Kowalski's Groceries for Good Causes

The program is simple: after shopping at the Kowalski's on Lyndale Ave, place your grocery receipt in the box labeled "Barton" just past the registers at the front of the store. A donation is made quarterly based on the total number of receipts collected in our box.   Please note that only the Kowalski's location at Lyndale Ave S and W. 54th St. has a box for Barton, and they ask that you don't put Kowalski's receipts from other locations into Barton's box at Lyndale.  (But feel free to put receipts from other locations into a box there for another worthy cause!)
