What to do with expired coupons!

I have read in the past about programs that can distribute expired coupons to members of the military. They are allowed to use expired coupons 6 months past the expiration date. Thanks to an email from my friend Heather O. she gave us an address to send them to. There are some "rules" to the way they want them sent, so please go here to find out more details as well as which military base to send them to. This is one small way that we can help our military families.

1. Send coupons that are just a month or two past their expiration date, since it takes time to ship, sort and distribute to personnel.
2. If possible, try to sort coupons into smaller envelopes in the same categories you would use. At the very least, sort them into FOOD and NON FOOD if possible.

Donna Presslor (coordinates multiple coupon sources to be mailed to bases)
205 N.  Harrison St.
Russellville, IN  46175  (she coordinates several coupon packages for shipment overseas)

**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.

That is so cool--thank you for letting us know, I always feel bad when I don't use a good coupon, now I feel a bit better knowing I can pass it to someone who might use it.
