Expired Coupons for the military!!!!

Join in Operation Expiration!

Overseas military bases will accept expired grocery coupons up to six months from their expiration date as well as non-expired coupons. We just recently learned of an overseas military base that needs coupons, and they have given us permission to share their information with you. For the cost of postage, you can help our military families save big every month!

PLEASE NOTE: Some people have been sending coupons that are expired PAST the 6 month limit, and the military base personnel are spending hours sorting through huge boxes of unsorted coupons to find usable coupons. Please send coupons that are only expired by a month or two, and sort them into categories to make it easier on everyone involved.

How do I send the Coupons?
Separate your clipped coupons into two categories: Food and Non-FoodMost bases have 2 stores. One is called the “Commissary” which is a grocery store and the other is the PX or BX which is a department store. We therefore ask you to sort the coupons into “food” and “non-food” bundles so that they can more easily be placed in the correct venue once they arrive at the base.

Label the Bundles
Try to use a baggie to separate your coupons instead of paper clips or rubber bands.

What’s Food & Non-Food?
Here’s the rule of thumb: It’s food if it can be eaten by humans, is usually eaten by humans, and is normally eaten to provide calories. For example, dog & cat food would be “Non-Food,” but Ensure or Slim-Fast would be “Food.” Vitamins would be non-food. Chewing Gum and Mints are food.

Is there a minimum donation?
No! Please send any coupons you may have. We only ask that you mail them only once a month. It will just be easier business this way!

**PLEASE sort the coupons into categories before shipping them to Donna. The great news is that she's getting lots of coupons and has sent out over 8 packages to military bases in only one month with your help! If you do send her coupons, please consider including $1 to help her defray the cost of postage. Thank you!
