Labels For Education Program Comes to Summergrass!

Save Your Labels to Help provide a Kid's Camp Kid with a Loaner Instrument Labels For Education Sometimes kids in the Summergrass Kids Camp don't have an instrument needed for their class. Under a new Summergrass Labels for Education program you can help those kids obtain a loaner instrument by saving label coupons found on various products such as Campbell's soup and nearly 100 other products.

Here's how to do it: On qualified products you will find the words "LABELS FOR EDUCATION" next to the UPC code . Please save that coupon with the UPC code attached. Bring the label coupons (not the complete label) to any Tuesday night Bluegrass meeting, and drop them off at the table or mail them to: Jerry Hass 9930 Dichondra Court, San Diego 92131-1806. Or better yet, bring them to Summergrass and drop them at the club booth.

Each label earns points towards a loaner instrument, so save as many as you can and help us put as many great instruments as possible in the hands of as many kids as possible. You'll be doing a great thing! For a complete list of products go to Labels for Education.
