By now all of our school children are no doubt back in class, learning, growing, making friends, and soaking up their education. This means that mom’s everywhere have been stocking up on school supply lists, buying uniforms, new backpacks, lunch packs and more. It seems that the spending never ends. Schools have to ask parents to help out with supplies because there just never seems to be enough to cover everything that is needed.

Well Safeway and My Blog Spark want to help. Box Tops for Education is donating money to schools. They are making it simple to give back with 2 Ways to Earn cash for your favorite schools. You can help too. It’s simple. Just visit your local approved Safeway grocery store and buy items on the list. You will get a special redemption code to enter on when you choose your school after September 18.
