Below are the instructions for cutting coupons for our troops. I would like to track the $ amount of coupons we, as an organization, are sending to Support Our Troops. Please report to Dee Johnson of Vida Chapter the $ amount each time you send a package of coupons. Thank you!

Troopons® -- Bagging Instructions --
The commissaries have requested that Troopons be bagged and delivered to them as follows.
1. Cut out the coupons. 2. Sort coupons into two piles by status: a. Expired. Not expired more than 2 months. (e.g. if today’s date is 3/1/2013, you would cut out coupons with an expiration date that is not older than 1/1/2013. b. Unexpired. At least two months of life left. 3. Sort each of those two piles into four piles by type: a. Food items b. Non-food items c. Baby food/items d. Pet items (like dog food) 4. Stuff them into plastic baggies. 5. Write the status (Expired or Unexpired) and the type (food, non-food, baby, or pet) on them. 6. Total the retail savings of the baggies and write it on them. This helps us track the value of the overall program. 7. Mail them to SOT as follows:
Support Our Troops® P.O. Box 70 Daytona Beach, FL 32115-0070
