Quincy Rotary After Dark adopts service project dedicated to helping troops overseas
QUINCY — The Quincy Rotary After Dark is a newly formed group is dedicated to service projects in the Quincy area. The group has chosen the Support Our Troops Troupon program as an ongoing service project.
The Support Our Troops® Troopons® program enhances the well-being of overseas and domestic military families by sending them food, non-food, baby and pet manufacturer coupons to make their dollars go farther. It is an easy way to make a big difference in their lives.
Expired coupons can be sent, for they are still valid for six months after their expiration date at U.S. military bases overseas. More than 60 percent of military families served by the Troopons program say they use these several times a month, and 33 percent say they use them weekly. Please note: Only manufacturer’s coupons can be used.
Members of Quincy Rotary After Dark will place boxes in various businesses to collect the coupons. They will collect the coupons, sort and package them and send them to be distributed to military families.
Collection sites for the coupons are:
- Quincy American Legion Post 37, 116 N. Eighth
- The Kroc Center, 405 Vermont
- YMCA, 3103 Maine
- Veterans of Foreign Wars, 600 Payson Avenue
- Gem City Chiropractic, 521 S. 24th
- Quincy Senior Center, 639 York
- Quincy City Hall, 730 Maine
- LeRoy’s Bar, 652 Payson
This newly formed group came together to provide a Rotary option for those who cannot commit to daytime meetings but want to provide service project options and promote the mission of the International Rotary group. The group meets at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 6 p.m. at Relax Quincy Spas. New members are welcome.
