Labels and Box Tops collection

Campbell’s Soup labels and Box Tops for Education are being collected at Holy Rosary School. These programs enable the school to provide educational resources that may be unaffordable through its regular budget. They offer exciting merchandise like computers, software, sports equipment, reference materials, science and art items, even musical instruments. Send labels to the school office or by place them in the church vestibule. Contact the school’s office with questions. Also, check labels for expiration dates. They can be sent in immediately and processed before they expire; there is no need to wait until a quantity is accumulated.
