Time to put all those free toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste you have stockpiled after getting them for free after coupons to good use! Click HERE for info on what to include in personal hygiene packs to help the tornado victims from Joplin, Missouri.
Locally, you can drop these packs off on Tuesday from 1:00pm to 3:00pm or Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm at Christ Community Church, located at 4224 S Farm Road 115, Springfield MO or call the church secretary, Mary, at 863-0901 to set up another time that works for you.
Another wonderful part of couponing is being able to help others in need!
