Volunteers with the Box Tops for Education effort say collection boxes have seen donations all summer and they are hoping the community continues to contribute as the new school year begins.

The program involves collecting the little “Box Tops for Education” logos on many grocery items. They are redeemed for cash put towards enrichment programs at Shelburne Community School.

In Shelburne the effort raises about $1,600 per year, coordinator Ashley Prout said. The funds go to the PTO which allocates it to the Nearby Nature ecology program for students in grades K-3.
