Helping Military Families

Don't throw away those coupons! Thanks to Memories at Home I came across this program. This awesome program take all your coupons including expired ones and ships them to military families overseas.
Here are a few details from their website:
"Our program serves military families by assisting you to forward "manufacturer's coupons" to overseas military bases. These bundles of coupons are placed on tables, at the PX and Commissary, or handed out for use by military members and families on base. This helps the family save valuable dollars and stretch their budget. The service pay rates are no longer below the poverty level, but they are in no way great. They appreciate your assistance.There is no minimum. You'll find that those pesky little pieces of paper add up fast! The average Sunday newspaper contains approximately $125 worth of coupons. Even the smallest donation, when combined with the donations of other individuals, will make a difference in the lives of many military families serving our country overseas.
Expired Coupons?2 Months Max! Yes expired coupons are accepted.
If you are interested in adopting a base, visit the Overseas Coupon Program here for more information.

Thanks again Memories at Home for posting this wonderful program I know that all military families will appreciate any type of support:)
Please pass the word and re post this, I know all of us thrifty moms have a ton of coupons to donate!
