Ladies and Gentlemen-
Madame Deals Gives Back
Every month we will have some sort of community service project. We think it is important to give back to our community and there are many ways we can help without spending a lot of money. We will share our community service ideas with you!
Coupons for Overseas Troops
In honor of Memorial Day, we have started a community service project that will support our overseas troops. It turns out that overseas military families can use expired manufactures 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. No Internet printable coupons can be sent.
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
Madame Deals plans on having drop boxes available at local businesses. We will update you soon on the locations. 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!
