Expired Coupons Help Military Families

Darlene left a message over on the LRWC Facebook page.  She is the coupon volunteer for Incirlik, AFB, Turkey military base.

She wanted to let LRWC readers know that there is an overseas coupon program for military families and she needs our help for the program at Incirlik AFB, Turkey.

The military commissary allows military families to use expired coupon for up to 6 months past the expiration date. They need your coupons that you will not be using or have recently expired. They are looking for only manufacturer coupons and coupons that are not more then 1 month past the expiration date (to allow for delivery & sorting time).  Sorting the coupons and placing them in a ziploc bag would make is so much easier for then to sort through them quickly. You can ship them to:

Coupon Program
39 FSS/FSFR
Unit 7505, Box 175
APO, AE 09824

What a great way to help our military families. Another frugal way to make a donation and make a difference.

    Do you know how they would like the coupons sorted? By expiration date? By product category– food, household items, etc???

    Thanks!

    • Cindy

      @Esther, I believe they like them sorted by category. Household goods, personal care items, grocery items. Basic categories. Thanks for asking!

  • Dac

    Just wanted to make sure, but no printed coupons, correct? Thanks.

    • Cindy

      @Dac, Yes, not printed coupons. Just the coupons clipped from the inserts. Thanks for asking!

    I will be sure to pass this on here in upstate ny!!!!! It is the least we can do for them!!!! Thanks for the info.

    I keep an envelope w/ my coupon organizer and as coupons expire I stick them in it. I usually have several that expire at the end of each month, so when I clear those out I stick the envelope in the mail and start a new one. I always copy the address off my old envelope before mailing it so I don’t have to look it up again. Just a tip to make it easier for those who want to participate.

  • I had no idea such a program existed. Thank you for sharing this! Do you happen to have any more information about the program, such as just a website with FAQs?

      @Dealafina, If you want to head over to the LRWC Facebook fan page you can post a comment there to Darlene. She is the one that is the volunteer for it.
