Fundraising/Collection Programs

Campbell's Labels for Education

After 42 years, this is the last year Campbell's is collecting labels to redeem for free merchandise.  As of August 1, 2016, only UPC's with the Labels for Education logo will be accepted and redeemed for points. Campbell's has begun the process of removing the logo and expect there will be a limited number of products that contain these labels in stores through August 1, 2017. We still have many labels to turn in points for, and you may still have labels at home. Please turn in your labels as follows:

1. cut the label on the dotted line

2. separate labels by point value

3. count labels and write the quantity of UPC's on a baggie or envelope


Giant Eagle Apples for Students

1. register your Giant Eagle Advantage Card at gianteagle.com/AFTS

2. enter our School ID #5281

3. shop with the Giant Eagle Advantage card.

Each time your card is scanned through March 18, your purchases automatically earn points, and those earned points will be turned into cash. We will receive a check to be used for our preschool materials and supplies. NOTE: for those who have already registered their cards, you can designate what percentage you want to go to each school, so you can help our preschools, as well as, an elementary school for older children!


Community Cash Back - ACME

Help us earn 5% cash back on store brands bought at your local Acme Fresh Market; save your register receipts from August 1-December 31. Turn in those receipts to your child's teacher or bring them to a Parent Council meeting.

Invite your friends and family to register their Giant Eagle card, save UPC's and receipts too!
