The Martins Mill FFA chapter is participating in a special fundraising program with WIX Filters, redeeming WIX filter box tops for 25 cents each.

The funds raised in this program are very important to the FFA program, club officials said.

The MM FFA is asking community members to use WIX filters and save the box tops for them.

The WIX filters box tops can be dropped off at Canton Parts Plus.

WIX Filters is helping FFA chapters across the country raise funds through a box top promotion, paying 25 cents for every WIX filter box top redeemed.  Since the program began in 1986, WIX Filters has contributed more than $475,000 to FFA chapters.

In addition to the 25 cents paid for every WIX filter box top, the company is also offering four incentive bonuses of $1000 each to the chapters with the highest number of box tops redeemed per member and a $1000 bonus to the chapter with the greatest percentage increase from last year.  WIX Filters also offers four National FFA College Scholarships to FFA members pursuing degrees in agricultural mechanics, and WIX is a sponsor of the National FFA foundation.

Professional  auto parts stores carrying WIX Filters are supporting the program with in store displays.
