Community Box Top Drive!

Green Meadow is reaching out to the community to support their Box Tops for Education campaign.

All money goes directly to the Green Meadow PTO to fund enrichment programs for students along with many other educational activities and events throughout the year. Families and members of the community can help the PTO reach their goal of $1,500 by clipping Box Tops and dropping them in one of these convenient locations around town: Green Meadow, CVS, Maynard Town Hall, Anytime Fitness, Jam Time, the Flower Pot, Middlesex Savings Bank, Maynard Council on Aging, Toast N’ Shine and the Maynard Public Library. Thank you for your support - every Box Top counts!
