California Milk Advisory Board #SmartFinalSupportsSoCalSchools

I am so very pleased to be a Smart & Final California Milk Advisory Board Ambassador. I love Smart & Final, which for those readers not in Southern California, is a chain of non-membership warehouse style grocery stores with great prices and they recently got rid of the club card component and just give the savings to all shoppers, making the whole shopping experience even more convenient.

Smart & Final is partnering with the California Milk Advisory Board for the “Help Our Teachers, Help Our Kids” promotion. This is a great campaign in which the students and teachers collect Real California labels from Smart & Final’s First Street brand diary products. After collection, the teachers submit the seal and each seal counts as one sweepstakes entry. Prizes include $20,000 for a school and Wii Fits. Also, teachers who submit 100 seals receive 25 Scholastic books (or a $25 supply gift card). And every single teacher that enters gets a Scholastic book.

The California Milk Advisory board will be announcing winners in February, but Smart & Final is running a separate sweepstakes! Entrants can go to FirstStreetSupportsSoCalSchools.com and explain why their SoCal school should win will be entered to win $500, $300 or $200 to donate to the school of their choice. And it can be entered every month for a total of 9 winners. Awesome.

In order to do my part, I went ahead and made a sample Real Milk seal collection container. Since Spencer is not quite at the school age for the contest, I decided to make a collection box for my friend’s school.  Always a fan of recycling materials, I used a clear container from some animal cookies. I peeled the label off and affixed some promotional labels, conveniently covering the part where the label glue refused to come off. I cut a hole in the lid and tada! collection box.

You know what makes up for the inconvenience of keeping a collection bin on your desk? Breakfast treats, that’s what.

Some great breakfast treats picked up for the drop off all purchased at Smart & Final of course. I’ll be collecting my Real California labels from all of my First Street products and passing them along to my friend. I might just use this as an excuse to buy a little extra ice cream!

This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for #collectivebias #CBias. All opinions expressed are my own.
