Coupon Clippers help families
Residents of Primrose gathered to clip coupons for military families overseas. The residents of Primrose Retirement Community are glad to be helping those who are serving our nation. We met weekly for two months to clip and separate coupons into food and nonfood items and labeled, paper-clipped and rubber-banded them into baggies to then be shipped to one of the adopted bases for our area, which was in Paducah, Kentucky, and then they were shipped overseas by the coordinator in charge.
This worthwhile project has kept us very busy, and we’ve had many laughs along the way.
We adopted another service project for the next couple months to tie into Earth Day recycling, using greeting cards and sending them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children (a fantastic organization that for more than 30 years has cared for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned). Check back in a few months to read more about this event.
