“Clip for Classroom” 2011 kick off

Diamond Bakery’s unique fundraiser earns school supplies for Oahu classrooms and a donation for Aloha United Way

Diamond Bakery (www.diamondbakery.com) recently unveiled their 2011 “Clip for Classroom” program to Leeward District school representatives during a presentation at Kapolei Middle School.

“We’ve partnered with Education Works and Aloha United Way on this great program,” said Brent Kunimoto, Diamond Bakery’s President.  “It’s a simple project that encourages students and teachers to clip Diamond Bakery UPC barcodes to redeem for classroom supplies and make a donation to Aloha United Way.”

Who is eligible? 
Any accredited public or private school or officially sanctioned school group is eligible to participate.  Elementary, middle and high schools in the State of Hawaii all qualify.

How does it work?
From August 1, 2011 to February 28, 2012 (7 months), students and teachers clip UPC barcodes from 6 oz. or larger packages of Diamond Bakery cookies and crackers. 

Each UPC barcode collected earns 15 cents for classroom supplies and 10 cents in charitable giving to Aloha United Way.  UPC barcodes are redeemed at the Education Works store located at Dole Cannery Shops, 735 Iwilei Road.  Once the program period ends and the total number of redeemed UPC barcodes is determined, Diamond Bakery will make a donation to Aloha United Way.

The redemption form is available online at http://diamondbakery.com/promotions/clip-classroom.

Who benefits?
Students and teachers benefit by becoming involved in a fun project that enables them to purchase supplies for their classrooms and make donations to Aloha United Way.  Also, classrooms participating in the Bonus Incentive can also receive gift cards and class prizes when they collect and redeem 90 UPC barcodes by October 31. 

Schools collecting the most UPC codes will be recognized by Aloha United Way for their community support.

Aloha United Way receives 10 cents for each qualifying Diamond Bakery UPC barcode redeemed by classrooms during the promotion period.

“Clip for Classroom” kick off presentations are also scheduled for the Honolulu and Windward Oahu school districts.  Qualifying neighbor island schools can receive all of the program information online at http://diamondbakery.com/promotions/clip-classroom.

October 2011 marks Diamond Bakery’s 90th anniversary of making and baking cookies and crackers in Hawaii.   “Clip for Classroom” is one example of how the company fulfills their mission of sharing heartwarming aloha.
