Boise Inc. Partners With Box Tops For Education®

BOISE, Idaho, May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boise Inc. (NYSE: BZ), a leading paper and packaging company, and the Box Tops for Education® program announced today a collaboration that helps consumers obtain much-needed funds for participating schools.

"We are proud to provide the opportunity for people to raise money for their local schools through choosing Boise papers," said Alexander Toeldte, President and CEO of Boise Inc. "We are committed to social and economic sustainability and participating in the Box Tops program is a great way to give back to the communities that buy our products."

Box Tops for Education® is a nationwide fundraising program for K-8 schools that encourages students to collect Box Tops coupons from a variety of products, from breakfast cereals to office supplies. Box Tops coordinators at each of the 69,000 participating schools send in the Box Tops coupons and receive cash for their schools. Established by General Mills in 1996, the Box Tops for Education program has helped schools earn more than $400 million.

"We are excited that Boise is joining Box Tops for Education," said Zack Ruderman, Box Tops for Education Director. "Clipping Box Tops coupons from reams of Boise paper is another easy way to help schools raise much-needed funds to support education."

Boise's wide range of quality papers have various uses in the office and home, making them a perfect fit for Box Tops. Redemption coupons – each worth ten cents when redeemed by participating schools – will be found on specially-marked reams of Boise® X-9®, Boise® FIREWORX®, and Boise® HD:P™ Premier Print papers, starting this spring. Boise products with the redemption coupons have begun shipping to the company's authorized distributors.

Money earned through the program can be used by schools in many ways, such as rebuilding playgrounds and boosting under-funded programs, or purchasing classroom equipment, library books, computers and other much-needed supplies.
