Recycled Card Program | St. Jude’s Ranch

Recycled Card Program | St. Jude’s Ranch.

If you are looking for a way to put your used holiday cards to good use we suggest

 

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children recycles your used greeting cards and creates new holiday and greeting cards for any occasion. Recycled cards are sold in packs of 10 for $10 to support our programs and services.

 

The program is beneficial to everyone – customers receive fun, “green” holiday 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 about basic job skills and the importance of recycling.

 

Recycled Card Program History

 

More than thirty years ago, wishing to show our 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…as well as Thank You cards, Easter cards, Birthday cards and Just Because cards.

 

Support for the Recycled Card Program was so overwhelming that people from all over the world began donating to our program by sending in their used cards. The Program became so successful that soon we were receiving more than 1 million cards.

 

How it Works

 

Operated by Kids’ Corp., a program for the children at St. Jude’s Ranch to learn entrepreneurship skills, the children participate in making the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by children and volunteers.

 

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