As you’re cleaning out expired coupons from your binder at the end of this month, why not set them aside and donate them! Military families overseas can use coupons up to six months past their expiration date. This is a great way to spread the coupon love and show our service men and women how much we appreciate their devotion and sacrifice.

Divide your clipped, expired, or unneeded manufacturer coupons into two categories: food and non-food. Separate the coupons in plastic zip bags and mail them to one of our volunteers who will get them overseas, taking care of postage and customs forms. Get more specifics and addresses, or learn how to adopt your own base here.

    I do this! I send them to a teacher/school in Louisiana and they take care of the rest! I clip ALL the coupons form the Sunday inserts and send whichever ones I don’t want.

      Is this someone you know personally or is there somewhere I can go to find more information?

        I do not know them personally, but I got a very nice “thank you” letter from them for all the coupons I’ve sent so far. I send them to: Sicily Island High School, c/o Eric Chauvin, P.O. Box 128, Sicily Island, LA. 71368.

      My family is orginally from Belgium and my Great Uncle has a plot there as he is MIA from WWII. Where do I get the address to send expired coupons to your base? And how does the expired coupons work?
      Thanks – Kris

        Address US ARMY CAFAP-ACS UNIT 21420 PO BOX 6675 APO AE 09705. They are given out to people that ask and volunteers tape them to items in the commissary. We can use them up to 6 months out of date. Thanks

    If we send the coupons to KCL volunteers do they be sure they get to bases that are in need the most? I’d like to know that if I send the coupons to them that wherever the go they will be used and not end up wasted due to over supply of coupons to any one base. I don’t know how up to date the base list is but it looks like there are quite a few in need of donations which is why I’m wondering more detail on if you send to those most in need or whatnot.

    I have a friend I just recently connected with on Facebook and I offered to send her all of my expired coupons. She said that they stopped doing that. I asked her if that was just her base of all of the military and she said all as far as she knows. We may want to find out about this.
