On behalf of the Riley Elementary PTA, I would like to thank the following local restaurants for donating gift certificates to our Box Tops for Education program this past school year: El Bracero Mexican Restaurant, Great Wall, Jimmy John's, Mancino's Italian Eatery, Mom's Home Cafe, Pizza Hut, Round the Clock/Christos Family Dining, Subway and Wana Pizza.

Their generosity has provided monthly incentives as rewards for our students and teachers to continue to collect box tops for this free year-round fundraiser. We collected 15,780 box tops to earn $1,578 to fund programs for our children. We attribute our success to the continued support of our La Porte business community.

I would also like to thank Kroger for contributing a gift card to purchase lollipops and Kabelin Ace Hardware and Parcel Port for shipping our mail-in submissions. Additional thank you's go to Mancino's and Wana Pizza for catering pizza parties for our top classrooms and First Church of God and Maple City Square Apartments for filling our drop boxes.

Local residents would would like to support Riley Elementary may drop off box tops at the school office. All of your contributions are greatly appreciated!

-Jill Ellis,

BTE Coordinator for Riley Elementary
