City Of Atlanta Declares Box Tops For Education Day As Celebrities And Key Community Advocates Join In Nationwide Town Hall Event

The General Mills program Box Tops for Education®, in conjunction with BET Networks, is hosting a Town Hall discussion to strengthen active parental engagement in our children’s primary education. Moderated by MSNBC contributor and executive editor of Politic365.com Jeff Johnson, the event takes place at Cosby Auditorium on the campus of Spelman College Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. The Town Hall is sponsored by Walmart and Honey Nut Cheerios®. The event is free and open to the public.

BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood” star Boris Kodjoe along with his wife, actress and mother Nicole Ari Parker, as well as Spelman College president Dr. Beverly Tatum, and Box Tops for Education brand manager Tommy Hillman will participate in a panel discussion. The event will unite parents, teachers, and community leaders in an effort to make a real impact on education in our schools systems. The City of Atlanta will also present a proclamation declaring January 24 “Box Tops for Education Day” in support of the program’s continuous efforts in the Atlanta school system. Key figures from Atlanta’s music and entertainment industry will be in attendance to stand in solidarity to offer support and share personal stories.

The Box Tops for Education Town Hall will premiere in its entirety via BET.com Monday, February 4. Parents and community members can visit www.bet.com/boxtopstownhall to check out this riveting conversation and learn how to become more involved in their child’s education.

The Box Tops for Education program was designed to help combat some of the budget challenges many of our nation’s schools are facing by creating an easy way for community members to support schools without having to spend extra money. There are many participating brands such as Honey Nut Cheerios cereal, Hamburger Helper® skillet meals and Cinnamon Toast Crunch® cereal that are already household favorites. Each participating brand carries a “Box Top” coupon worth 10 cents to a school, and unrestricted funds earned by submitting the Box Tops to General Mills can be used to purchase books, school supplies, playground equipment, teacher training, computers, etc.
