What is OCP? 

 

Our program serves military families by assisting you to forward "manufacturer's coupons" to overseas military bases.  These bundles of coupons are placed on tables, at the PX/ BX and Commissary, or handed out for use by military members and families on base.  This helps the family save valuable dollars and stretch their budget. 

This is not a tax deductible charity.  This is a patriotic charity.  You are supporting the service person and their family by sending coupons that you do not use, and all of the extra ones that you can find, to them.  The service pay rates are no longer below the poverty level, but they are in no way great when you have a family.  Our military service families appreciate your assistance. 

Our charity is run at the most, by just a few volunteers and often by just one.  We have no donations and no budget.  Our volunteers spend a lot of their free time and personal funds to support this worthy cause and care very much about it.  Please keep in mind that we also have personal lives that require our attention.  At times we may be absent to attend to personal affairs and not get right back to you but we have not abandoned the program.  We will be back soon.  Please be patient.  For information on the program please read the site. 

This website will answer almost any question you can think of.  We have been doing this and answering questions for over 17 years.  Please read through the site carefully.  If you still have questions, by all means send them to us.

Thanks for your interest and your support!
