Recycling Holiday Cards & Helping Others

As we move into "that time of year," and the holiday cards begin to get mailed out, please keep in mind the following program that can benefit from your used cards. The St. Jude's Ranch for Children will take your used cards and recycle them into new cards to resell and benefit their program.



Why St. Jude's Ranch for Children? "They rescue abused, abandoned and neglected children of all races and faiths from the vicious cycle of child abuse and provide healing and nurturing in a safe home-like environment where children can learn life skills to start new lives with new chances, new choices and new hope. St. Jude’s Ranch for Children has three campuses in Nevada and Texas. The Bulverde, Texas campus is located in the Texas Hill Country just north of San Antonio. Also about 30 minutes north of San Antonio is St. Jude’s Emergency Children’s Shelter." The Ranch also helps pregnant teen mothers through their pregnancy, supporting them physically with a residential facility and mentally with parenting curriculum and a high school education.

For more information about the recycled card program and all the services the ranch provides, visit their website: http://www.stjudesranch.org/shop/recycled-card-program/

(They can not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards.) The Ranch also accepts Campbell Soup Labels for Education.

They take cards year-round for all occasions. Send your donations to: St. Jude’s Ranch for Children ATTN: Donor Office P.O. Box 60100 Boulder City, NV 89006-0100
