Last week, General Mills announced that it’s Box Tops for Education program has raised over $5oo Million for schools. This program started with Box Tops on the Cheerios boxes only and has now grown to 240 participating brands with over 90,000 K-8 schools enrolled in the program.  The average school earns around $900 in the program.  But, there are some schools that are earning up to $20,000.
