Bags 4 Birney

We are not collecting can and bottle donations on campus at this time. Donations can be taken to RePlanet at 4460 University Av. They will give cash and a receipt/voucher. The voucher and cash can be turned into Trish in the office.  Let us know and we will pick it up and mail the voucher in for an extra 10 %. 

Benefit is an app that lets you buy digital gift cards to spend on normal every day purchases--you never lose the gift card, and a portion of your proceeds go back to Birney.

Here's how it works: download the mobile app to your phone, then search through Non-profits for Birney PTA. [If you can't find Birney, you're probably looking in Schools instead of Non-profits.] Then set up your credit/debit card or checking account and use Benefit to purchase gift cards. Those purchases give a percent back to Birney, and the gift cards can be used straight from your phone or online.

Box Tops for Education

Drop your Box Tops in the drop box in the office or at SAY or Prime Time to earn rewards for Birney. Box Tops can be found on many products, including Ziploc bags, Avery labels, and Kleenex facial tissue. More information is available on the Box Tops site.
