If you're interested please note:
- Commissaries CANNOT accept "in-house" coupons issued by commercial grocery stores or supermarkets. However, they gladly accept Internet and manufacturer coupons.
- Do not send any coupons older than 2 months expired on the date of shipment. They can use them for six months after their printed expiration date but remember that the volunteers at the base must process the coupons once they arrive and get them out to be used. We also need to leave enough time for the families to sort through them and find the ones they want for use.
- Separate the coupons into two major categories - Food (for humans) and Non-Food (pet food would be non-food). Place them in large sealed freezer bags and label.
The base I've chosen for my contributions is the U.S. Army base in Illesheim, Germany.
