In July of 2015, Plucking Of My Heartstrings adopted an overseas military base to send expired coupons to. Since then $69,882.95 in coupons has been sent to a Navy base in Yokusuka, Japan.
The first package of expired coupons for the year (2018) was sent on January 8th. It totaled $2,961.55 and there were over 3000 coupons.
In case you were not aware, expired coupons of up to 6 months can be used in overseas military commissaries. You can find more information here: Overseas Military Coupon Program
THANK YOU, once again, to those who have donated expired coupons! Having once been a military wife raising five children, I can tell you that coupons really do help a lot with the expense of food. And I am quite sure that the Yokusuka, Japan military base is very appreciative of the help!
Keep those coupons coming!
