The Box Top Fundraiser is raising money for a bad cause. The fundraiser is to give back to the school, but a few benches isn’t really giving back that much.

The Benches being installed will cost about $700 plus shipping. NJHS is planning to install 2-3 benches.The benches are being installed “to put in the front of Sierra Middle School to improve the aesthetic and functionality for our students,” NJHS website said.

Each Box Top is worth 10¢. To raise enough money for just one bench (without shipping) the school would need to raise 14,000 box tops.

There is no point in raising that many box tops for one bench that doesn’t really change the school. Even though kids might use those benches, there isn’t enough benches for every student to use it.

Students weren’t donating enough box tops, so they had to ask for cash donations to meet the goal. The reason students weren’t bringing in enough Box Tops is because they don’t want the benches.

The Box Top fundraiser it self is not the problem, it is what we are fundraising for. The fundraisers that raise the most money are the ones that students enjoy and want. The benches that the box tops are being collected for is not something students want.
