Thanks to all who submitted for the last Box Tops contest. Woodside will receive a check for $1362.60! Way to go!
Special thanks to all those who took the time to get rid of their expired Box Tops. This time there were more than 3,000 expired Box Tops we had to recycle before we could count the 14,000+ we could submit. By purging your submissions of the expired Box Tops, you make a monumental task a little bit easier. Thanks!
Keep collecting those Box Tops over the holidays, and watch for the next contest in 2018!
