Instructionf for cutting coupons!

Hi All,

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

Only "Manufacturer's Coupons" can be used. They can be from the newspaper, dispensers in grocery stores, tear-pads, and elsewhere as long as they state "Manufacturer's Coupon" on them. No assistance vouchers. No food stamps. No store coupons. No restaurant coupons. No Internet coupons. 

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our military troops and their families!  

Happy clipping!
