Service Learning Opportunities

Coupons to Troops (ongoing)

Coupons to Troops logo

We are collecting expired (and unused current) coupons to send to our troops overseas. The PXs and Commissaries overseas accept expired manufacturer coupons for a few months, and we will be mailing ours to our adopted base in Spain monthly.

So if you get the Sunday paper or otherwise have unused or expired coupons, bring them in! Students get credit for collecting, cutting, sorting, and tallying coupons for our troops! (No printed or store coupons, please.)

Operation Greeting (Sept. 13-Oct. 13)
Commemorating September 11, 2001, we will be creating Get Well Soon cards to send to soldiers in a trauma hospital in Germany as well as field sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. For one month, we will be creating and collecting cards to show our appreciation for our brave soldiers so far from home. Help brighten someone’s day and receive volunteer hours at the same time!
