Overseas Coupon Program

Hello Sweepers,

We are nearing $500,000.00 in coupons donated!

As most of you know The Southern UT Sweepstakes Club contributes expired coupons to The Overseas Coupon Program. We have been contributing for almost 3 years. We have an awesome total.

The Overseas Coupon Program was started by a soldier that saw a need and had a vision. Coupons being used by our military families overseas are extended for up to 6 months past the expiration date. What a great opportunity for those of us at home to give.

Our grand total for coupons sent is over the last two and a half years is almost a half million dollars. We have two bases in Germany and one in Japan. The military families are very grateful or any and all contributions.

For anyone interested in a club charity this would be the one. You are using something that is going to get thrown away or recycled. The coupons raises the standard of living for US military families overseas so its a big win all the way around.

Where possible we use any of the unexpired coupons we receive for The Dove Center, The Hope Center and Dixie Care and Share.

This may sound time consuming for a hobby club. Any work concerning charities is all voluntary and not mandatory to belong to the club. You put in as much or as little as you want or your time allows. We have turned into the little club that could!!!!

If you are interested in learning more about the hobby if Sweepstaking call me or send me an email. I am always ready to talk sweeps. If you would like to know more about the OCP or any of our charities please call or email. I am happy to give you all the information.....Good Luck Whammies Coming Your Way....Paula.
