The 2018 Box Top Redemption Program Continues Support of FFA Student Groups



WIX® Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, has awarded $50,089.50 to national FFA chapters through a box top redemption program in partnership with the National FFA Organization.

“The goal of the box top program is to support and inspire the future leaders in our industry,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for WIX Filters. “As a former member of FFA, I have seen the impact of this organization and know how important additional funding can be to FFA programs. I am thankful for the loyalty of each FFA member and the financial commitment from WIX that makes this program possible.

This year, students in participating FFA chapters redeemed 176,358 WIX box tops for a donation from WIX of $44,089.50, or 25 cents per box top. In addition, six FFA chapters received a $1,000 bonus from WIX, bringing the total donation to $50,089.50.
FFA chapters across the country competed for $1,000 bonuses in different categories, including most box tops redeemed and the greatest increase in tops from the previous year.

The six FFA chapters that earned a $1,000 bonus are:
• Sugar River Valley FFA, New Hampshire
• Bennett County FFA, South Dakota
• Hopkins FFA, Michigan
• Chesnut Ridge FFA, Pennsylvania
• Greenbriar FFA, Arkansas
• Milton Hershey FFA, Pennsylvania

The National FFA Organization’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
