Arrow Don't Throw Away Expired Coupons!

Hello everyone,
If this has already been mentioned on this board, then I apologize.

Please don't throw away expired coupons as they can still be used by military families overseas.

Thanks

Coupons To Troops is another website that has great information on getting starting sending coupons overseas. The biggest difference between them and the OCP is that Couponstotroops encourages you to send directly to a military family rather than to just a generic address on base. By sending to a family, you have a better chance of hearing back that they your coupons have been received and getting to someone who will be able to use them in time. Iíve heard horror stories about boxes ending up in the trash on bases because there werenít enough volunteers to help get them distributed before that 6 month expiration window was up.

I personally have a list of military families who are stationed overseas who are interested in receiving coupons. If anyone would like me to help put them in touch with a family, please let me know. By that same note if any military families stationed overseas would like to be added to my list, please contact me for more information!!

I started doing this last month. As someone who has been a part of a military family her whole life, these things REALLY help. It's nice to be able to give back to the families whose loved ones are putting their lives on the line.
