Coupons for Overseas Troops
We have started a community service project that will support our overseas troops. It turns out that overseas military families can use expired manufacturers coupons for up to six months after the expiration date at the commissaries. So, instead of throwing away those unwanted and expired coupons, we are sending them overseas!
Only manufactures coupons can be accepted. Please do not send coupons for specific stores or restaurant coupons.
Tips for making this a great project:
- Cut coupons out. This will make it easier for them and less weight for shipping fees!
- Sort coupons into two categories; food items and non-food items.
- Place categorized coupons into Ziploc bags labeled with Food or Non-food.
- Send only coupons that are expired by two months. It takes time for the coupons to get to where they are going!
We have decided to adopt a base through http://www.ocpnet.org/ . We looked over the list of bases in need and decided to adopt U.S. Navy Sigonella, Sicily!
Here is the address:
PSC 824, Box 2650
FPO AE 09627-2650
You can also mail coupons to:
Unit 7505, Box 175
APO, AE 09824
Madame Deals has drop boxes available at local businesses. Mail Boxes Express at Lake Monticello, Virginia have a drop box location for your coupons! The Fluvanna County Library also has a drop box for expired coupons and a swap box for you to exchange coupons! If you are not a local please feel free to send your expired coupons to the above address! When you do, please let us know that you sent some so we can thank you!
