Couponing for Community- Give to Those in Need

This week is Couponing for Community Week!

If you've got some extras in your stockpile, or have a few extra coupons, why not give to others who need help?

Here are all the details on Couponing for Community:

Couponing for Community is a nationwide event utilizing the power of couponing and social media to make a united impact for those in need.

This is where Saving and Giving Unite.
We invite you to join this community by using your couponing skills to give to a homeless shelter, food pantry, or a friend in need during the week of May 8-14!

What is the Goal?
This year we are setting a goal of 10,000 items donated in one week’s time. We invite you to track your giving during the week of May 8-14 and then come back here to share your story. We'll even have a giving tracker to tally up everyone's efforts!!

Why May 8-14?
We are the kind of people who find ways to give all year long. But we have chosen to set aside one week each year to ‘flex our couponing muscles’ for GOOD and show the impact we can have when we work together. We also chose this week because May 14 is national Stamp out Hunger Day, so giving can be as easy as putting a bag of non-perishable food items out by your mailbox on Saturday, May 14. Check with your local Post Office to find out if they are participating at Stamp out Hunger.

I'm going through my stockpile, so why not look over yours and see if there are some items you wouldn't mind donating. You can even leave your bags of goodies out by your mailbox on Saturday and the Post Office will pick them up for you!
