St. Jude’s Ranch for Childrenst judes

The mission of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is to “transform the lives of abused and at-risk children, young adults, and families by empowering them to create new changes, new choices, and new hope in a caring community.”  In order to work towards their mission, St. Jude’s offers several different programs including: therapeutic residential foster care, programs for pregnant and parenting teens, transitional living programs, and more.  Successfully running these programs is no easy task and requires support from the community.  One of the easiest ways to support this organization is through the recycled card program.
Recycled Card Program:

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children recycles used greeting cards and creates new holiday and all-occasion greeting cards. The profits St. Jude’s gets from this program supports the services for abused, neglected, and homeless children, young adults, and families.  There are two great ways that you can support this program:

  1. Donate your gently used greeting cards. Simply bring in greeting cards you’ve received and are no longer using to church with you.
  2. Purchase refurbished greeting cards from St. Jude’s.

Visit St Jude’s Ranch for Children and under the “About Us” tab click “Recycled Card Program.”
