PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a continual commitment to give back to schools, Lysol®, an RB brand, has partnered with Box Tops for Education to help schools nationwide earn funding for education while creating a healthy back-to-school experience so students can focus on what matters most during the school year – learning.
"With approximately 38 million school days missed each year due to influenza alone1, Lysol strives to encourage healthy habits and proper surface disinfection at home and in schools," said Rory Tait, Marketing Director, Lysol. "We know that teachers are using Lysol disinfecting products to keep their classroom and students healthy. Now that Lysol is the exclusive surface household cleaning brand to partner with Box Tops for Education, we hope parents and teachers can rest easy in knowing that the cleaning and disinfecting products they already use and trust can earn cash for their school."
In addition to the partnership, leading up to the start of the school year, Lysol wants to help schools earn even more. For a limited time, when purchasing two participating Lysol products, 20 bonus eBoxTops - the equivalent of $2 worth of Box Tops - will be available for redemption.
This fall also marks the 20th birthday of Box Tops for Education which was founded by General Mills. To learn more about Box Top for Education, visit BoxTops4Education.com.
"Since 1996, Box Tops for Education has helped schools earn more than $780 million and has played an important role in providing cash for schools to buy the things they need," said Audra Carson, who leads the Box Tops for Education program at General Mills. "Through our partnership with Lysol, we're ensuring that schools continue to benefit by providing unrestricted funding to help with basic operating needs and programs that would not be possible otherwise, such as field trips, classroom technology, musical instruments and so much more."
