The Wayne County Juvenile Probation Department is looking to establish a new community service project, Coupons for a Cause, and is asking for the community’s support.

Coupons for a Cause will work in conjunction with the Overseas Coupon Program (OCP). OCP seeks volunteers to clip, sort, and send unused and/or expired coupons to U.S. Military Bases overseas. The coupons that are sent are greatly appreciated and help military families stretch their budgets.

A similar program is currently being operated by the York County Juvenile Probation Department. The York County Juvenile Probation Department has sent over $200,000 in coupons to an overseas Military base and their efforts have been duly noted and appreciated. Inspired by their efforts we hope to accomplish the same.

The Wayne County Juvenile Probation Department is excited to embark on this new endeavor and is asking the community to save any unused and/or unwanted coupons, coupon inserts, or expired coupons for the Wayne County Juvenile Probation Department. Please be advised that although Military bases overseas often take coupons up to six months past their expiration date, the Wayne County Juvenile Probation Department asks that you only provide the department with coupons which have expired within the last forty-five days, as it takes time to process and mail the coupons. The donated coupons will be sorted, clipped, and tallied by our youth volunteers.

Any coupon donation, large or small, clipped or unclipped, will be greatly appreciated. Coupons or coupon inserts may be dropped off or mailed to the Wayne County Juvenile Probation Department, located at 925 Court Street, Honesdale, PA 18431. If you have any questions of need any further information please contact Mary Ann Swingle at (570) 253-5970 ext. 2324 or Sandy Fofi at (570) 253-5970 ext. 2304.

Let us all pull together and help our friends and families overseas!
