W     Community Cash for SchoolsBy collecting UPCs from Community Coffee and Private Reserve products, friends and families of Cathedral School can help earn cash for the school.  Over these 20 years, schools have earned over $4,000,000; but what’s really important is what that means to local school children – new textbooks, new computers, new playground equipment, and even a natural bird sanctuary for a science class. Since 2004 Cathedral has received $12,220.70 – just think what that amount of money means to Cathedral School. We ask that you save your UPCs from all coffee and tea products, creamer, sugar, and filters, etc.) and submit them to the school. The value of each UPC is determined at the end of the Program each year.  Historically, the UPC value has ranged between 10 to 15 cents per UPC.
