Idea CARDS FOR A CAUSE - ONGOING MISSIONS

There are several groups who accept cards year round. They welcome any amount of cards you would like to send. If you have a group or organization you would like to have added, please let me know. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many!!!
__________________________________________________ _____

Embrace Clinic & Care Center
180 1st St NW
Barberton, OH 44203

They take all sorts of cards - anything including Baby (for new moms), Birthday (for volunteers), Thank You (for donors), and praying for you. They have also started a mens ministry so cards for men are appreciated too. Envelopes are appreciated but not required. No restrictions and religious cards welcome.
__________________________________________________ _________

South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice
Attn: Tisa Collins-Williams, Office of Volunteer Services
220 Executive Drive

Columbia, SC 29210

Cards requested are Miss You, Thinking of You, Birthday, Congratulations, Thank You, Get Well, Encouragement, and blank note cards. Religious theme is welcome. Cards can be blank on the inside or stamp some on the inside for youth who don’t quite know what to say. They love variety. Please do not use items on cards that are sharp (metal, staples, etc). Envelopes are requested.
__________________________________________________ _________

Cards requested are Thinking of you, have a nice day, hello, care & concern, and hopeful messages are welcome. Blank cards are also acceptable. Please try to avoid get well soon, feel better, and religious messages. Some of our recipients are terminal and it is often hard to gauge religious involvement based on individual backgrounds. Please keep inside of cards blank and include envelopes.

Envelopes are appreciated. The only restriction is not an excessive amount of glitter.

"I keep a box of greeting cards supplied for use by the chemotherapy patients at the Tebo Cancer Center in Boulder CO. While being infused, they have several hours in which they could, for example, write thank you notes to those who are helping them through their ordeal. We can use cards of any theme. Envelopes are a bonus! We can also make complete cards out of your spare card fronts. 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" format is preferred. One time when I was refilling the box, I found that a patient had used one to thank US for providing the cards, saying that she actually looked forward to perusing our "mini art gallery". And several times I have been stopped and thanked on my way in or out of the room. Thank you so much for your contributions."

Please let me know. I would hate to throw them out.
Thanks!

I have a number of "For a Friend" cards that I'd like to donate. Which group would they be appropriate for?

Hi Maggie,

Not sure if you got an answer to your question, but I perused the list below and I think the last one on the list might be a great fit: Project Give Thanks. But I think they would work for several others as well such as Bring Smiles to Seniors; Card Care Connection; Embrace Clinic; and S.C. Dept of Juv Justice. Their request all seem broad enough that "For a Friend" would fit. Good luck.

Thanks Debbie. I will check that one out. And, no, I had not gotten a previous response, so thanks again for your response.
