Default JULY 2018 Mission-CARDS FOR A CAUSE

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



ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
Community Pregnancy Center

Description of Organization:

Mission statement: To strengthen women and families by serving those with pregnancy-related concerns through educational, emotional, spiritual, and material support.

The CPC provides many services to new moms and dads including layette package, formula, diapers, counseling, cribs, car seats, etc. They are there for crisis pregnancy as well as anyone who asks for help.


CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Zella - russnzella

TYPE OF CARDS:
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.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
NONE

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:
Community Pregnancy Center
180 1st St NW

Barberton, OH 44203


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

I wasn't sure you were going to post in July so I pulled out some of the older requests and had already started making some cards for this organization! LOL Great minds think alike! I last letter I got when I donated cards here mentioned that they specifically look for baby cards (to give to the women when their babies are born) and Thinking of You cards - for those women who they haven't seen in a while. Already have a dozen made and hoping to make a bunch more. THANK YOU for posting these opportunities each month. I do so enjoy making cards for organizations who need them.

Haven't had to make many baby cards so I'm excited to try my hand at them. Will be glad to send them others from my stash.

I'm off to look for stamps for babies and new Mom's.

Cards will be mailed tomorrow. I'm glad I recently made a bunch of baby cards since I'll have company for the next few weeks and won't be stamping as much.

Mailed a dozen cards today. Wish it could have been more but didn't have a lot of time to "create" this month.
