Collecting Box Tops
is an easy way to support Unity West simply by cutting out the Box Top
logos from products you already purchase. Simply send Box Tops to

any quantity at any time. Each label earns Unity West ten

forms. Simply place any amount of box tops into a baggie and
write on it your child's name and teacher name and send it to
school. That way, your child and class will receive credit during
