Another update: Rowlesburg WV IS A BIG LOTS WINNER!

A BIG thank you to all who helped Rowlesburg School win First Prize in the Big Lots Lots 2 Give contest. They won one of the First Prize awards of $5,000. Yippee!!!! My friend Jenn is thrilled that her local school won $5,000 courtesy of Big Lots. $5,000 is a nice chunk of change, but the school still needs lots of help. One thing she said the school does to help is they collect the Boxtops For Education points I've been sending them to Jacob's school for several years now but I think this year, I'm going to send a big bundle to Rowlesburg. If you collect the Boxtops for Education points and don't know of a school that takes them, you can send them to:

Rowlesburg School
RR1 Box 255
Rowlesburg WV 26425

And of course if you aren't a Boxtops for Education cutter-outer but still want to help somehow, I'm sure they'd appreciate a cash donation.

If you've been around the site for a while, you may remember that years ago I asked for Boxtops for Jacob's school (his school had a contest on who can turn in the most - and he ended up winning!) So I know there are tons of people out there who collect the Boxtops but don't know of a school who wants them. Rowlesburg wants them. Keep in mind, the boxtops do have an expiration date printed on them in small print, so expired ones are no good.

On the Big Lots website you can see the videos of all the winners.
