Ongoing Project - Box top for Education Collection

BoxTop Many of us throw away the Box Tops for Education labels that are on products we use daily. Saville Elementary is a Riverside school that WSU students currently work with. Saville has an Excellent education rating, but also has a high population of needy students. Collecting and donating the Box Tops for Education allows the school to shop for needed supplies and is an easy way we can help. If you are willing to donate your Box Tops for Education to Saville Elementary, please send them to Joanie Hendricks at 216 Med Sci.
