Cards for seniors
 
My name is Betty Turner and I live in MN. Just moved here. My parents are in a memory care facility and I would love to make holiday cards for the facility. I was thinking. Valentine's, Easter, July 4th, Halloween and Christmas.
No envelopes needed. Can anyone help me?
The facility has one request, no glitter. My address is
1631 Marthaler Lane #105 West St Paul, MN 55118
Thank you.

I am in the process of making Easter cards for some other organizations, so I would be happy to make some extra and send them to you. My husband is in a nursing home so I know how much the residents enjoy receiving cards especially now.

Sarge 02-27-2021 10:32 AM

Hello betty: I posted a dozen Easter cards to you this morning. The USPS said they will be delivered by Wednesday. Hope you like them. Sarge

Betty Just a quick question. Do want an Easter sentiment on the inside or left blank?

melissa59 02-27-2021 11:55 AM

My march cards will be going to a foster child program but when I complete that obligation, I will be happy to make some cards for the senior facility.

Smart folks knowing to ask for no glitter on the cards! Sounds like they've already been there, done that. LOL

I'm guessing that these cards are for the patients to give to staff or one another since envelopes are not needed. What about cards for the patients to send to family and friends outside of the facility? Are they not sending any out?

hardanger40 02-28-2021 11:33 AM

Mailing you two dozen Easter/spring cards tomorrow.

mac4551 03-06-2021 05:49 AM

Thank you so much. I will be looking for them. You are the BEST.

Today I mailed 22 Fourth of July cards. Odd number because on half of the cards (two designs) I forgot and used glitter paper (not loose glitter) for the word "celebrate"... but was able to remove it from 9 cards successfully using Connie Stewarts method of using the heat gun to melt the glue. I was able to die cut the word in Crayola StarDust papers. Came out pretty good... except for about 3. So, I will use them in my own stash. Enjoy !

hardanger40 06-03-2021 05:14 PM

Will be mailing two dozen 4th of July cards tomorrow.

bturner77373 06-07-2021 05:54 AM

I will be looking for them. You are the greatest!! :lolo:
Hugs, Betty

rainykay 06-07-2021 06:37 AM

Hi Betty, Will be mailing 24 cards to you this afternoon.

mac4551 06-10-2021 03:23 AM

my package was returned with insufficient address - I left off the #105. And then I moved the word WEST to West St Paul... because PO said West St Paul and St Paul have the same zip. Mailed again... we'll see if this one comes back ! - Sorry for the confusion!

Cards were posted today.
USPS Tracking No. 9505 5143 1068 1173 5181 66
Expected Delivery Date: Friday, June 25, 2021

They are 4th of July cards, so I think with all the other contributions you'll have more than enough for all the residents.

terry serman 06-23-2021 03:18 PM

I have a ton of Halloween and fall/thanksgiving cards I can mail to you next week.

terry serman 07-01-2021 02:13 PM

Hi Betty. I have 10 thanksgiving, 8 Halloween, and 6 Xmas cards that are ready to go into the mail in the next day or two. Just wanted you to have a heads up.

mac4551 09-13-2021 06:38 AM

I will be mailing 30 Halloween cards this week.

Sarge 09-17-2021 03:31 PM

Betty: Hopefully, I got the zipcode right this time. I sent off a box of Halloween and Christmas cards for your folk's facility. The box was mailed this morning. Sarge

rainykay 09-29-2021 11:08 AM

Betty, Will be mailing 18 Halloween cards out to you tomorrow.

lovinpaper 09-29-2021 11:37 AM

Betty, I just send a package today by UPS. It should arrive on Friday. I think there are 17 Halloween cards and around 25 Christmas cards. I counted then we pulled a few out as I was questioning if they would be good for the residents. I remembered the no glitter rule you asked for, so we pulled a few that possibly would not be good. Enjoy!

ScrapperBecca 09-29-2021 01:12 PM

Hi Betty,

How many residents are there at the facility where your parents are living?

Thanks,
Becca

mac4551 10-03-2021 03:54 AM

Just checking before I jump into creating more cards: your original note does not mention Thanksgiving. Do you prefer no Thanksgiving cards? If so, I will start on the Christmas cards.

thanks !

SBinGA 10-05-2021 06:31 PM

I PM'd Betty for the answers to our questions:

Hi Sharon,
Thanks for responding. The facility has 74 residents. The Waters of Oakdale. In Minnesota. My parents are in the memory care unit.
I have Halloween and Thanksgiving
already. What a blessing! Can use some help with Christmas. No glitter and no envelopes. They're delivered by hand. Sometimes in gift baskets.
Any help is great.
Your friend, Betty

I can definitely help with Christmas, I have a ton of Christmas cards just sitting in boxes. I will work on that this week and get them in the mail to you

rainykay 12-07-2021 11:06 AM

Mailed 20 Christmas cards out to you yesterday.
