SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale native Hannah Steinberg was featured on ABC’s The Chew On Monday after showing off her coupon-saving skills at DeCicco’s of Scarsdale.
The show aired on Monday, Nov. 16. Steinberg discusssed her charity, Our Coupons Care, and helped spread awareness about feeding the homeless.
Television crews trailed Steinberg as she shopped the aisles at DeCicco’s. On the Coupon Cares website, Steinberg, now a student at Tufts University, said she became obsessed with TLC’s Network show, “Extreme Couponing,'' when she was in 9th grade. “I realized that the men and women on these shows were able to stockpile many items for extremely reduced of free prices. Some even received money back on their purchases!”
After seeing first-hand how the recession was impacting families around Scarsdale, she started her own “extreme couponing” and donated all items to The Coachman Family Center, in White Plains, a shelter that offers temporary housing for families.
She has since expanded Coupon Cares, and has volunteer teams in Massachusetts and has started making international donations.
Using coupons, Steinberg has collected video games, notebooks, board games, cereal, stationary, writing supplies and toiletries for the shelter.
