I am clipping coupons to send to a military base. Where do I find an address to send them?

Try doing a search on Google, or call a military recruiting office. They might be able to give you a telephone number.
Do a search on "coupons for troops" here on Thriftyfun and you should get a couple hits. This is where I got started. I currently send coupons to a family in Germany and they take out what they want and then share the rest with friends. Its an inexpensive way to help our troops and their families and you get to know some new people too.
Okay, I did some searching and found an old post with the info you need.
I sent an email here "Toni Anderson" <couponsfortroops AT gmail.com> and received a reply with a military address about a month later.
Here are a couple of links with info that should be helpful:
Okay...just noticed that "Tony Anderson" link didn't stay live with the cut and paste. It is live in the post where I copied it which is here on ThriftyFun http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf797711.tip.html
But I found the email addy again <couponsfortroops AT gmail.com>

Can someone give me the address to send expired coupons to the military families? I have moved and lost my contact. Many thanks.

There is actually a group you get in contact with and they match you up with a military family overseas. That family is part of a chain , after they go through the coupons they pass them on to other families on the base. I do it with a family in Austria.

CouponsToTroops can help put you in touch with a military family who is stationed overseas and looking for coupons. Just send an email to them at email@example.com (or look for them on Facebook - www.facebook.com/CouponsToTroops
How can we find someone to walk us through the steps of sending coupons to our military families overseas? We don't care what branch of service, we just want to make a family's life easier. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.

Mr. and Mrs. Lee,
You can probably find all the help you'll need at the following website: http://www.ocpnet.org/. If you still have questions after looking at the site, just write to them and they'll answer them.
I am trying to find military families that would be interested in receiving expired coupons. I know that these families can use the coupons 6 months outside of the expiration date, but I do not know of any families that can use them. I would rather send them to individuals than to a military group so I can send what each family needs. Please email me if you can help.

I read in a Woman's World magazine that this site will find a military base that will distribute coupons I do not use or need. I would like to know how to go about this. I work in an adult training facility for the mentally retarded and we would like to take this on as a project. Please give me information. We are located in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Thanks for any help you can give me.
I think that it is commendable that you want to set this up as a project! Rather than pipe in my own take on this, I am posting an article with all the info and links you should need. Happy couponing!
