Have your kids gone back to school? Are you sad, relieved or a little of both?  My grandkids are all back in school and loving it so far.  Mid-week sleepovers at my house have come to an end, but I do get to spend time with them after school and on weekends. And I love having a chance to help schools in need.Kellogg's Helping Schools

A Trip to Sam’s Club

This past weekend, two of my grandsons went to Sam’s Club with me to stock up on after-school snacks and quick breakfast options.  It’s so much easier to buy snacks they really like when the kids are with me.

A Chance to Help A School in Need

Product Demo

We were in luck because there was a Kellogg’s product demo in full swing, so naturally, the boys headed in that direction.  Kellogg's Demo

Head to the Cereal Aisle

After the tasting, we headed to the cereal aisle to check out the special logo on the Kellogg’s products mentioning Free Books, 1 Box = 2 Books.  Free?  Did someone say free?  I’m all over free books AND a chance to help schools in need. (Keep reading, we’ll get to that part later)

A Change to Help a School in Need

Thanks to my mom and 1st-grade teacher, I think books are the best things ever invented and I’m so glad that the love of books has been passed on to my grandkids as well.  I read to them every chance I get.  The older grandsons read to me every chance they get.

Redeem Free Books

Every classroom can use some new books. How awesome is it that we an help our teachers like this.

CYNTHIA NICOLETTI August 18, 2015 - 8:01 am

It is great how Sams Club and Kelloggs can help schools by donating. We as parents can help by purchasing Kelloggs products.

Jacqueline August 18, 2015 - 8:03 am

Nice! My next door neighbor has a card and sometimes I send her to pick me up goodies. I will add this to my list! Our family is big on books. The way I got into reading was by getting free books from the library and other school programs. It’s SO important that all kids have access to books early so they can grow their love of reading like I did 🙂

Jeanette August 18, 2015 - 9:12 am

I think that anything to do with books is awesome. I think kids should read a lot more than they do it gives them the tools to do so many things in life. Great program!

Wendy August 18, 2015 - 1:04 pm

I thought a new book was one of the best things as a kid and I still do! It’s a great day when one of my favorite authors comes out with something new. Love seeing kids get started early with good books like I did.

What a great opportunity to help schools out that need new supplies. Books are so important to young readers 😀

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle August 18, 2015 - 1:19 pm

This is a fantastic program! With all the cuts to school funding, we need this more than ever.

Becky August 18, 2015 - 1:53 pm

What a great program that Kellogg’s is doing!! I love the idea of getting more books in the hands of our young ones!!

Erlene August 18, 2015 - 2:31 pm

That’s such a great program. My kids eat a lot of cereal and it’s great that I can redeem codes for free books. Plus, my girls are always looking for more books to read.

Life as a Convert August 18, 2015 - 8:09 pm

That’s so cool that you can get free books just by purchasing the products you already use.

Paula August 18, 2015 - 8:55 pm

I was just at Sams over the weekend and saw this! Bought my Kellogg’s snacks and have sent in my form too. Love that Sams is doing this very worthy project!

Jenn August 18, 2015 - 9:19 pm

What a great program! I love when large companies help school communities!! Way to go!!

Liz Mays August 18, 2015 - 10:07 pm

What a great way to collect more books for your kids. It’s cool that you can choose which books you would like.

ricci August 18, 2015 - 10:18 pm

This is such a great reward program!! I love anything that will get kids to read!

Annemarie LeBlanc August 18, 2015 - 10:31 pm

Amazing! I love how Sam’s Club and Kelloggs collaborated to organize this great program. I love that we’ll be raising kids with healthy bodies and healthy minds! Thanks for sharing.

Ann Bacciaglia August 18, 2015 - 11:12 pm

This sounds like a great program. I like that E books are included.

rika agustini August 19, 2015 - 3:07 am

great program. I support education! This is an easy way to support schools in need.

Katarina K August 19, 2015 - 10:04 am

This sounds like an amazing program! Reading is so so essential for everyone, but you sure build the “reader’s” habit early on!

Nickida August 19, 2015 - 10:29 am

What a great way to help schools by something you already have to do. I wish more companies would offer programs like these.

Carrie @huppiemama August 19, 2015 - 11:50 am

I’m so glad Kellogg’s and Sam’s Club are working together to encourage children to read AND by donating books to schools in need. It’s a win all around! #client

Chubskulit Rose August 19, 2015 - 1:15 pm

I have collected few books from scholastic program as well and my kids love reading them. I think that every cereal company should do this.

lisa August 19, 2015 - 1:37 pm

What a really great program! We love shopping at Sams Club and we definitely love free books and helping schools in need!

Nancy L. August 19, 2015 - 4:55 pm

Wow! That is a great program for schools! Sam’s Club is really stepping up to the plate and doing their part in communities. This isn’t the first program I’ve seen them initiate. I’m very impressed. I need to look into getting a membership! I love companies who give back!

Rosey August 19, 2015 - 6:03 pm

I love Sam’s and I love Kellogg’s. I’m always happy to hear when big companies are helping the schools.

Bonnie @ wemake7 August 19, 2015 - 8:34 pm

That is so cool that Kellog’s was set up there. We used to go to Sam’s club all the time but now we have to travel a lot to get there.

HilLesha August 20, 2015 - 5:06 am

It has been awhile since I’ve been to Sam’s Club, but I love that they’re doing this. It is such a wonderful way to help schools out!

Carin Kilby Clark August 20, 2015 - 7:19 am

I love that they donate to the schools. It’s so important because they need all the extra they can get with their budgets constantly being cut. We go back to school at the end of August so one more week of Summer! I’m both sad and glad. Haha

Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies August 20, 2015 - 2:53 pm

This sounds like a great way to help out schools this year! I love that they’re doing this!

Leena Madan July 17, 2018 - 5:23 am

Thanks for sharing valuable information.
Every child should be given a chance to succeed! Schools can’t do it all by themselves. If we don’t find a way to engage parents then we are not gonna get it done. It is well documented and pure common sense that parents involved in child’s education boosts student learning and Improves well behavior and student attendance.
