The 25th annual Kids First Coupon Book sale begins Friday. For two weeks, students in the Hamilton County elementary schools will be selling the nearly 200-page booklets that cost only $10 and feature thousands of dollars in savings from area stores, restaurants, attractions and service providers.
During the past 24 years, the Kids First Coupon Book has raised nearly $14 million for public education. Unlike other school fundraisers, Kids First is produced in-house by a non-profit organization, and all of the proceeds stay in Hamilton County for the benefit of local schools. The schools keep $7 for every book sold, and the money is allocated according to their individual needs to pay for such things as technology upgrades, instructional materials, art supplies, science equipment, and educational field trips. The remaining 30 percent of coupon book revenue covers program expenses and funds other projects that benefit the schools.
