Cash for Cheerios EventMiddle College at Skyline College students presented a check for $580 to the Martin Elementary School at the February 11, 2016, South San Francisco Unified School District school board meeting.  The check represented 5,800 redeemable box top coupons they donated that are worth 10¢ each.  The school will submit the box tops to General Mills to earn the $580 in cash. The students clipped the coupons when repackaging mislabeled cereal boxes of Cheerios as a community service project at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank.  The community service project is an authentic learning experience that lets the students realize that they can make a real-life difference in their community through meaningful and vital community service while gaining greater understanding issues of hunger and poverty.
