Operation: coupons, a ministry of Cypress United Methodist Church, is an all volunteer group serving military families overseas. Our sole purpose is to show God’s love by collecting, clipping and shipping current and recently expired manufacturer’s coupons to military personnel stationed at overseas installations.The cost of living in a foreign country is very high. These coupons allow them to save money when they shop on base at the commissary and exchange stores AND they can use them six months after they expire here. Because of frequent mail service delay, we ask that you donate only four-month-old coupons (or less). We accept all manufacturer’s coupons: food, cosmetics, baby, medicine and personal care. What we CANNOT accept are store or restaurant specific coupons such as Walgreens, Domino Pizza, Boston Market and the like.
We mail every month to specific military families who have committed to us that they will take what they can use and then get the rest into the hands of other military families. We receive emails from many military folks saying these coupons save them so much money that they feel like they get a pay raise each month!
We currently ship to military families stationed in Germany, England, Italy, Sicily, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Guam, South Korea and Japan.
Our fine military men and women put their lives on the line everyday and their families sacrifice a great deal just to keep us all safe.This is a great tangible way that we can say thank you over and over and to remind them that they are not forgotten.
Ordinary people can do extraordinary things for our great military all over the world.
