The U10 Arsenal and Revolution youth soccer teams are collecting boxtops and Labels for Education to help the Wilkinson family.

The Wilkinsons lost their home Aug. 28 when their house exploded due to a propane gas leak.

Jake Wilkinson, 9, plays on the soccer team.

Sarah Noble Intermediate School is offering a Google Nexus tablet as a prize for the person who collects the most points from the labels.

Bolstered by a generous anonymous donation, if Jake were to win the tablet, his younger brother, Everett, would also get a tablet, plus gift cards to fill the tablet with apps.

The contest will run through Oct. 12.

After the deadline, labels can still be donated to schools throughout the school system, as every label collected earns points for schools.

To help with the contest, labels can be mailed to Mikki Harkin, 11 Meadow Ridge Lane, New Milford CT 06776.
