Support Our Troops with a Coupon-Clipping Party!

Hey, guys! I am a local volunteer for Coups for Troops, a charity that helps collect and send expired coupons to military families living on base, where they can use coupons that are up to six months old at the PX for groceries and other goods. People from all over send me coupons, and often, they aren't clipped out of the circulars yet! I am hoping I can get a group of volunteers to meet and help me clip and pack these coupons so I can send them to the families on base.

This will be a nice, laid-back meetup; we can just sit and chat and get to know one another while we keep our hands busy clipping coupons, and we can enjoy Panera's yummy food or beverages if we like. Please bring a pair of scissors and your awesome self, and if you have any expired coupons you would like to donate, that would be great too!

This Panera location is in the North Elm Village Shopping Center in Greensboro (not the part with the Harris Teeter, the newer part). The Panera is in the front row, right by the entrance across the street from the Wells Fargo (formerly Wachovia). I will try to get there at least fifteen minutes in advance to secure some seating.

    Guys, check out Laurie's event (Christmas shoe boxes for kids)--if you can't make it on Thursday but want to help out, I will be attending, and you can drop off some things to me today, if you like.

    Interested, but need something in the Winston-Salem, Rural Hall, Pfafftown area, if possible. Greensboro is about 35 miles from where I live, and the gas $$ is a problem! Hope something can come closer to home.

      There are lots of opportunities in the Winston area--I would recommend the "Unchain Forsyth" events.

    As always, if you find yourself waitlisted, PLEASE IGNORE THE WAITLIST. It won't let me lif the limit, for some reason, but there is no limit. Everybody come on ahead!

      What date, and time is this walk? Could you pass on some more info? I have personal reasons to especially be in this walk. I think Wilmington is about 4 hours however, from Winston-Salem. Since I am not a native NC, could you tell me if I am correct? Otherwise, others know of Alzheimer's walks in the near future?
