Recycle & Donate Greeting Cards

Hey there, Do-Gooders!

Ever thought about possible reuses for your holiday cards?! Do you typically toss them out like most people do?! Please consider making a donation to a great cause and...let's grab a drink while we're at it! Bring your used greeting cards and together we will sort and ship as needed.

Donate your cards to St. Jude's Ranch for Children. This charity recycles old cards by making brand-new ones. The money from these new cards is donated to the help children who were the victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

Card Donating Tips:

  • All types of greeting cards, including Christmas, Easter, Birthday, Thank You are used.
  • Only the card front can be used (please check to be sure the back side is clear of any writing, etc.)
  • We can not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards.
  • 5″ x 7″ size or smaller is preferred.

We will mail donations to:
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children

Recycled Card Program
100 St. Jude’s Street
Boulder City, NV 89005

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 the children and volunteers. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive “green” holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of “going green”.

Thanks a big bunch for your consideration!
