Baggaley Elementary School Receives Over 13,500 Labels for EducationTM from Morella's Route 30 Shop-n-Save
By Christine Emmick
Over the last two years, the owners and patrons of Morella's Route 30 Shop-n-Save have donated over 39,500 Campbell's® Labels for EducationTM to Latrobe area schools. The most recent donation was over 13,500 Labels for EducationTM certificates to a Latrobe area Elementary School. The students of Baggaley Elementary School in Latrobe happily received these at this month's PTA meeting from the owners, Craig and Lisa Morella, of the Latrobe area Shop-n-Save.
Campbell's Soup Labels for EducationTM program enables schools to get free school supplies and school equipment. With these certificates, the school can select anything from Crayola® art supplies, Merriam-Webster's® reference books and Math Blaster® learning software, to playground equipment, to an overhead projector or a wireless PA system. The program also includes earning points for video projectors, iMac® and Dell® computers, flat panel TVs, educational games, science kits and models, microscopes and even an electronic scoreboard.
Members of the community joined their efforts by donating Labels for Education UPC codes from the products they use and dropping them off at the box located at the front of the service desk. Many Campbell's® soup UPC codes qualify for the Labels for EducationTM program, and Labels for EducationTM points are also found on selected Spaghettios®, Franco-American®, Prego®, Pepperidge Farm® and Swanson® products. Selected V8® juice caps and certain Campbell's® Foodservice products are even accepted. For more information on the program, visit www.labelsforeducation.com.
