NY COUPON FAIRY
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much" - Helen Keller
Our Mission:
To help support our local charities, families in need, and our troops.  How?  I collect manufacturer coupons, traditionally found in the Sunday papers, which are used to purchase food and supplies for donation.  Get involved by collecting coupons which can be dropped off at one of our drop-off locations (Crossroads Deli in Mahopac, and Somers Deli in Somers).  Even expired coupons help!  I mail them to military bases abroad to help offset the cost of living for our troops.  I will periodically pick up the coupons you donate and use them to purchase food and supplies for those in need.   What I do is not only important to me, it's important to our community and those in need.

Allow me to introduce myself; my name is Margaret Betancourt and I am the founder of NYCouponFairy.  I am a native New Yorker and currently reside in upper Westchester County.  I am married with a beautiful young daughter.  I work primarily in accounting as well as in sales, essentially because I thoroughly enjoy helping people achieve their goals, whether it be getting a new home, saving money, or at times, even, looking better.

I was not only fortunate enough to have 9 wonderful biological siblings, but I was also granted the fortune of having hundreds, if not thousands, of pseudo-siblings.  My father could never deny anyone a warm meal, coat, boots, etc.  This was a legacy he passed down to me, without even realizing it.

While on the Board of Directors with the Community YMCA of Northern Westchester, I finally had the opportunity to launch a program which involved the children.  They helped collect and organize coupons in order to purchase products that could be donated… and NY Coupon Fairy was born!

Since not all of the products are FREE (although, that is the goal), I have been priviledged enough to have several part-time jobs that allow me the opportunity to offset the difference.  Currently, I am pleased to be a part of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty in Somers, NY, as well as, a Credit Card Processor for PurePayment Solutions.  In addition to all of the above, I still find time to run my own Corporate and Personal Bookkeeping Company, Fun-N-Games.

Being able to give back to the community and those truly in need is very important to me.  Having the opportunity to send care packages to our troops is the very least I can do to thank them for my freedom.  What they give of themselves everyday, so we can enjoy peace in this country, is truly beyond my comprehension.  I want to make their time away from home just a little less uncomfortable.  Need is not seasonal, need knows no age, need does not discriminate.  We all hope and pray we are never on the receiving end, but if you were, wouldn’t you like to know there was someone out there who really cared about YOU?
