Collect & send in to help your school

OES participates in the following programs. There are separate boxes in the lobby for each program unless noted. Please send items in separate envelopes or bags.

Box Tops for Education – Clip the small Box Top logo on participating products. Check out www.boxtops4education.com for list of participating products.

Used Print Cartridges & Small Electronics – Recycle these and earn money for OES! Accepted items include: ink jet cartridges (no larger than the palm of your hand), used cell phones, laptop/notebook computers, iPods, digital cameras.

Holiday Shoppe Items – Donate your unused gift items or new craft items (ex. scarves, beaded jewelry). The PTO will “re-gift” them by selling them at our Holiday Shoppe in December.

Extra Envelopes – Donate unused envelopes for the Wee Deliver letter writing program. You can also send letters to your students. There is a mailbox in the lobby for your letters. Address envelopes to your student at their classroom number or teacher name.

Price Chopper Tools for Schools - Sign up your AdvantagEdge card to Owego Elementary School (#39399). OES will automatically earn tools for the school every time you shop. Sign up in store or at www.pricechopper.com.

Band Instruments – Share the gift of music. Donate the band instrument that is in the back of your closet. Drop off in the office.

Children’s Books – The OA Family Reading Partnership has red crates in the lobby and office for book donations. Drop off gently used books your child has outgrown.
