Default AUGUST 2018 Mission - CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2018 Cards For A Cause
AUGUST MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:

South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice

Description of Organization:
The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is a state cabinet agency, and by law, it is also a treatment and rehabilitative agency for the state's juveniles.
DJJ is responsible for providing custodial care and rehabilitation for the state’s children who are incarcerated, on probation or parole, or in community placement for a criminal or status offense.
Our goal at DJJ is to protect the public and reclaim juveniles through prevention, community programs, education, and rehabilitative services in the least restrictive environment possible. We welcome you to our website, and invite you to learn more about DJJ and what we do for the communities, citizens, and children of South Carolina.

South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice



CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Sue - bensarmom

TYPE OF CARDS:
miss you, thinking of you, birthday, congratulations, thank you, see you soon, get well, encouragement, Christian, and cards without an occasion listed on front. Stamp some on the inside for youth who don’t quite know what to say, leave some blank for those kids who are more expressive. We’d love a variety! please include envelopes.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
if we can make the humble request to not include anything that may be considered “sharp” that would be awesome...such as metal, straight pins, or staples.

GUIDELINES:
Please keep in mind, we are representing SCS by sending our cards each month. Recycling is always good, but only use products on your cards that you would like to receive on cards. Also, our card donations are not tax deductible and it is not required. Please do not ask for a receipt. There have been groups that will send thank you's but the "referred by" person keeps us informed and passes on the thank you's. Most of these organizations are volunteers and spend countless hours helping others, lets help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.

MAILING ADDRESS:
Jennifer Wallace
Director of Volunteer Services
220 Executive Center Drive
Columbia, SC 29210-4016


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the OPTIONAL challenge each month. This is only optional and you do not have to play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not. This months challenge is to be inspired by the color/mood board, see first post below. Be sure to use the keyword C4AC so that we can check out your card and comment! To see this gallery C4AC click here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Another exciting announcement, we now have a badge for you to proudly display on your blog; here is the link.
Sticky:Cards For A Cause Blog Badge
Also, we have a section now for on going Cards For A Cause, these are organizations that take cards all year. If after your monthly generous giving you have others, go here..thank you so much for all you do!

Fellow SCSer's, thank you for spreading your SCS love! Please feel free to mail your cards all throughout the month of June!

Once you have mailed them come back to us here

When I tried to create my shipping label, USPS says this is an invalid address and I can't proceed. I think it might be the plus 4 digits of the zip code? I just changed that and it says it's a non-deliverable address.

I have nearly 100 cards read to go for this cause, but since there is still time, I'm trying to get a few more done to fill the box. They will be shipped in a week or so.
