St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Recycled Card Program

By | December 23, 2009

St. Jude's Ranch for ChildrenSt. Jude’s Ranch for Children has an awesome greeting card recycling program that is a great way to reuse & recycle while helping the amazing kids at the Ranch campuses.

All you have to do is mail your used thank you notes, greeting & holiday cards to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children.

When St. Jude’s Ranch for Children receives donor cards, the children participate in making the new cards by removing the front of the card from it’s back or inside portion. The donor card front is then centered on either an ivory or white backing resulting in a ‘new’ card with a recycled front panel. 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”.

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children then packages the cards in packs of 10 with white envelopes & sells them online or by phone (1-877-977-SJRC) for $10 a pack.

You can mail your card donations to:

    Hello! I am wondering if yall could use two big boxes of cars. They are for all sesons and never have been used! I work at a pharmacy and my boss cleaned up our card rack, and was throwing away cards and I just saved all of them for you guys. I don’t know if you need me to cut the backs off the cards? Or if you could even use the cards at all? Please let me know and I would love to mail all the cards to you for the great cause! I think your program is wonderful and I am trying to get every one in my town to help me send more cards!!! I am from Mississippi and I think we can help!

    Are you affiliated with the St. Jude’s Hospital in Tennessee?

    No, I am not affiliated with any of the St. Jude’s Hospitals, I just loved their Recycled Card Program.

    Is it okay if we cut the backs off the cards first before sending – I know you can’t accept Hallmark or American Greetings so was unsure if you needed the back to check.

    Just wanted to ask a quick question.
    Do you take greeting cards that are homemade?
    Why I ask because I make index cards for “Meals-On-Wheels” program for
    Seniors and sometimes I make more that I need for the Holidays etc.
    I also will be sending you some x-mas recycled cards with not backs- is this ok?
