St. Jude's Ranch for Children Recycled Card Program

The United Parish Missions Committee Accepts New and Used,

All-Occasion Greeting Cards Year-Round!!

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children recycles your used greeting cards and creates new holiday and all-occasion greeting cards. Recycled cards are sold to support their programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families.

The program is beneficial to everyone – customers receive fun, “green” holiday or other occasion cards they can feel good sending to their friends and loved ones, and the children at St. Jude’s Ranch receive payment for their work and learn basic job skills and the importance of recycling.

Recycled Card Program History

More than thirty years ago, wishing to show their donors appreciation for making St. Jude’s Ranch for Children possible, the idea was conceived to turn the previous year’s Christmas cards into “new” cards for the coming season. The recipients were so delighted when they received the unique “thank you,” that they requested to purchase the special cards. The program soon expanded to include all-occasion greeting cards.

How It Works

Operated by Kids’ Corp., a program designed to teach entrepreneurship skills, the children at the Ranch participate in making the new “green” cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by children and volunteers.

NOTE: They currently have an increased need for both Birthday and Thank You card submissions.

You may purchase cards in their online store or call (877) 977-SJRC (7572)

Cards are sold in packets of 10 for $17.00 including shipping and are available in the following categories:

General Christmas Cards

Religious Christmas Cards

Easter Cards

Birthday Cards

Thank You Cards

Sympathy

Thanksgiving

All-Occasion Blank Greeting Cards

 

To Donate Cards:

Year-round, we happily accept used all-occasion greeting cards.

Please review the following tips before bringing in your donation.

* Only the card front can be used   (any card front with handwriting on it will be discarded)

            (We will remove the backs of the cards before we send them to St. Jude's)

 

* We can not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards

* 5″ x 7″ size or smaller is preferred

Please drop off your donation at the United Parish M-T & T-F  8:00 AM to 1:00 PM or
