Helping Military Families With Your Expired Coupons

With March ending and a April you have lots of unused, expired coupons??

I wanted to re-post this so that you can send your expired coupons in to help someone else.

The other day I received an email from Julie, a woman who attended one of my coupon workshops. I had mentioned at the workshop that they could donate expired coupons to military families. Julie received the note below from a dear friend of hers and I asked if I could pass the info on to all of you. I was given approval and hope that you all will be willing to help these families!

My oldest son Andy is stationed at a USAF base in England. The base family support center is collecting expired grocery coupons for military families to use at the base grocery store. The store accepts expired coupons up to 6 months after the expiration date.

If you have any coupons that are expired (I hate it when that happens :) ), the family support center at Lakenheath would love to have them.

The envelope (as long as it is of normal weight for a single stamp) takes regular US postage and doesn't need a customs form. The coupons can be for anything normally bought at the grocery store (food, laundry, diapers, shampoo, etc).

Thanks for your help. :)

Here is the address:
"Attention: Coupon Connection Program"
Unit 5200,Box 105
APO AE 09464-0105

Would you all be willing to help out these families that serve our country?? It's simple, put your expired coupons in an envelope and send them on their way!
