Never miss a local story.
1. Cut and trim the sides of the coupons. This is not only helpful to the receiving centers, but you do not want to pay postage on dead weight.
2. Separate the coupons into two major categories - Food (for humans) and Non-Food (pet food would be non-food). Place them in large sealed freezer bags and label .
3. Go to http://www.ocpnet.org/ to get the mailing addresses and any additional information.
