Coupon Ministry (Assistance to Military Families Abroad)

Our military families serving around the world are faced with low pay and high food prices.  Quite often, produce prices are prohibitively high.  First Christian is responding to this situation through a unique ministry that mails coupons to two bases (one Army and one Air Force) in England.  Recipient families can use the coupons to lower their grocery costs in many areas and allow more money for such things as produce and other “non-coupon” items.  The coupon ministry has received local notoriety (see link below) and people throughout Loveland are now dropping off their coupons at First Christian.  Members clip them and ship them to waiting and thankful military families in England.  On the average, over 20,000 coupons are sent to England every month!  The program needs postage funds and hands to clip and ship!  Is this an area of passion for you?  If so, you can pursue it at First Christian!
