St. Jude’s Recycled Card Program
Dec 1 – Dec 31 all-day

St. Jude’s accepts used all-occasion greeting cards for repurposing to raise money to support programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families. Throughout the month of December, please bring any unwanted greeting cards for our collection basket, and we’ll take care of the rest. At the end of the month, we’ll mail them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. Please note that St. Jude’s is unable to accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards.

 

Notes:

  • Only the card front can be used (please check to be sure the backside of the front of the card is clear of any writing, or we can do this for you here at the library)
  • St. Jude’s can not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards
  • 5″ x 7″ size or smaller is preferred
