Harrison Elementary Lions Project is still going strong. We now have two people working with students. Contributions of box tops, ink cartridges, milk caps, and education points continue to come in. Do they make a difference? This week I counted, trimmed, and packaged 1800 box tops and several hundred “education points.” The box tops amount to $ 180.00, and the education points will be redeemed for educational materials. In the newsletter there is a list of products which have the coupons on them and help you in your collection. Keep the good work going, and plan to hear about our support of a new Harrison program when Principal Linda Reysack provides the program on November 17.
