Small actions added up to a big difference as College of the Mainland employees donated 1,005 Box Tops for Education to Hitchcock Primary. The employee group COMPeers coordinated the drive that exceeded their expectations. 

Schools can redeem Box Tops for Education, labels found on General Mills products, to help buy what they need most, from books to field trips to playgrounds.

An active community service group, COMPeers coordinated a school supplies drive for Hitchcock ISD last fall and has donated Box Tops for Education to two other elementary schools. Over the holidays, it collected items for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, which provides presents to disadvantaged children.
