Coupon Tip Tuesday: Coupons for the Community
Okay FAB readers, get your service hats on and listen up!
Coupons for the Community is a new non-profit program partnering with the Idaho Foodbank. It is a volunteer organization that helps over 220 charitable organizations throughout the state of Idaho by using your unwanted store and manufacturer coupons to stretch the limited dollars available from government funding and public donations. They in turn donate those goods to the Idaho Foodbank.
Sounds like a way to give back that is right up our alley!
Here’s how you can help:
Donate Your Time
They need help organizing, clipping, and sorting coupons. An hour a month? An hour a week? Great, come help!
Mail donations to Coupons for the Community at the address below. Donations are tax-deductible. Make checks payable to the Idaho Foodbank and write Coupons for the Community in the “memo” field on the lower left of the check. Want to hold a coupon or money fundraiser? Let us know.
Don’t throw away your coupons! Donate them and let Coupons for the Community use them to find great deals for the Idaho Food Bank! Mail your coupons to the address below. They can even take expired coupons to send to their partner organization in NJ.

All of us here at Fab Frugal are so excited about this program! As couponers, many of us don’t have the means to donate as much money as we would like to. So knowing there is a way to help out our community with the resources we already have at our finger tips, well that is FAB by us!!
We will definitely be participating, and we encourage all of you to do the same!
If you do not have this program in your area you can still donate your coupons to the Overseas Military Program!
