Grocery & Manufacturer Coupons

"Remember this December,
that love weighs more than gold!"
~Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon

We Can received another thank you letter from the military base in Yokosuka, Japan thanking us for sending them coupons and emphasizing how important the coupons are to military families. Currently their family support center distributes over 1000 quart-sized ziplock bags of coupons every week!

Please spearate food and non-food coupons into separate ziplock bags and label the bags "food" and "non-food." The coupons must be vendor (or manufacture coupons) -- not store coupons, and they must be cut out.

Mail them to:

Coupon Distribution
Fleet and Family Support Center
PSC 473 Box 116
FPO AP 96349

You can mail them yourself, or get them to Carolyn.

Sharing Our Love

"What would be the cumulative effect of millions of small, compassionate acts performed daily by us because of our heartfelt Christian love for others?  Over time this would have a  transformative effect upon all of Heavenly Father's children through his extension of His love to them through us.  Our troubled world today needs this love of Christ more today than ever."  Elder Russell M Ballard, "Be Anxiously Engaged," Ensign, November 2012, 30.

 Monday, January 7 we met at Lynn's home to make Valentine's to give to people in local care centers on Valenine's Day.  A lot of creativity and artistry was used to create over 100 Valentines.  We also collected winter coats and paper products for the Food and Care Coalition.

 Aren't these Valentines lovely?  We hope they brighten up someone's day and they can feel the love that we put into them as we created them.
