Help without spending $’s

Want to help Bell Middle School and the PTA raise money without spending money? Here are a few easy ways to help by shopping places you probably already shop.

1. Target Credit Card: 

Did you know that you could sign up for a Target Credit Card (or Debit Card) and 1% goes to the school of your choice (hint – CHOOSE BELL) and 5% goes to YOU for purchases made at Target and! Through their Take Charge of Education®, it is a win all around!

2. Amazon Smile: 

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.  On your first visit to AmazonSmile (, you need to select a charitable organization (Bell Middle School) to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. They will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation.

3. Boxtops4Education: 

Save box tops from cereal boxes and from a whole list of products. Bell MS PTA usually receives 10 cents for each box top. (Thanks!)  I just have a ziplock bag taped to the inside of a cabinet.  As I collect them, I just slip them into the bag.  It is hidden and easy to do. Please turn in box tops to the collection box in the main office any time throughout the year.

Curious how it works? Read up on Box Tops.

4. King Soopers Card: 

Here is an easy way to help Bell Middle School raise funds for curriculum enhancement at absolutely NO COST to you! We thank King Soopers for their generous donation to Bell Middle School of 5% of all the re-loadable GIFT CARD purchases. Buy a “gift card” from the Bell School contact (Sue Urban).  This card is different and in addition to your normal rewards card but very similar to the Outdoor Lab program card.  If you have completed your Outdoors Lab fundraising and are in a nice habit of using the card, you can get a new card attached to Bell MS PTA; or you just want to help the school immediately (or your neighbor or grandparent wants to help)…

For more information go to the King Soopers Card info page or read up on how Bell Middle School is using the funds.

5. Longmont Milk Delivery: 

Save your Longmont Dairy Lids! This wildly successful program has been a “win-win” situation for Bell, Mother Earth, and Longmont Dairy. Not only does Bell benefit by receiving 5-cents for every lid you bring in to the school, but over the course of one year we have helped to save MANY lids from the landfill by helping the dairy recycle their own lids 🙂 Please keep those lids comin’! You can find the Longmont Dairy Bottle Lid recycle boxes near the elevator in the front entryway of Bell. Thanks for your support!

Get details on Longmont Dairy or contact Gwen Stroup if you have questions.
