We had the opportunity to participate in Elmer’s Bag It Forward program and really loved to be able to give back to a teacher and some students that could benefit from some Elmer’s products.
What is Bag It Forward?
Elmer’s is encouraging us to join together and Bag It Forward by picking up an extra bag of school supplies and donating it locally in your community.
It’s easy to join. While you are out shopping for school supplies, pick up a few extra ones and either donate it anonymously to a teacher, put together an extra bag or two and give it to some students who could really use the help, or donate it to a local community charity that could use it.
After your shopping for the Bag It Forward program, take a picture of what you purchased or how you donated the products, and upload it to the Bag It Forward website.
How else can you help?
From July 25 through Sept. 1, for each “like” on the Elmer’s Facebook page, the company will donate a product to the Foundation’s national network of free stores, where teachers from disadvantaged schools can “shop” for free for school supplies. Products to be donated include a variety of glues, foam board, project supplies and pencil sharpeners. If you already like the page, we’ll make a contribution on your behalf, but you can donate again by watching a video on the Elmer’s Kids In Need Facebook tab and sharing it with your friends and family.
How can you save on purchasing Elmer’s products?
Elmer’s is a Upromise partner and that every time you purchase an Elmer’s or Krazy Glue product with your registered drug or grocery card, a percentage of your purchase will be put into your Upromise account.
Stack the Upromise savings with the great prices on Elmer’s products at Walmart and also use Elmer’s manufacturer’s coupons to save even more money!
What we think of being a part of Elmer’s Bag It Forward program:
We are very honored to be able to give back to the community in this special way. We truly believe that each teacher should be able to provide the best education for every student without the worry of making sure that each student has the supplies they need so they can concentrate on their studies and do the best they can to achieve their educational goals. Our purchase included Disappearing Purple Glue Sticks, School Glue, and Gel School Glue Sticks. Thank you to Elmer’s Bag It Forward for showing us how easy it is to give back!
