I have a large box of assorted greeting cards and would like to donate them. Could you give me an address to send them too?

You can call the local preschools and ask if they need them.The nursing homes, senior centers always need things for crafts. I used to make "Get well, Hope you feel better soon,Sunshine" cards for people in the hospital, out of used cards and construction paper. Maybe a Girl Scout troop can use them? GG Vi
I am an environmental educator, and am always in need of greeting cards for lots of projects I teach! I can use the entire card, front and back (many of the sayings can be re-used for multiple projects!). If you'd be willing to help, please send cards to my attention (Casey Eckert) at 4200 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, TX 75093. Thanks very, very much!
Most elementary schools will use them, especially Christmas cards. But they will likely not turn down your cards. Phone around.
I was a teacher for years, and we used cards for numerous projects.
Sunday schools might use them as well.
St. Jude's Ranch for Children accepts all types of greeting cards. You can mail your donations to:

St. Jude's Ranch for Children only needs the fronts of the cards (only send ones that do not have any personal writing on the back). It will also save you in postage.

I am going through my cards new and used ones and want to know if I need to just send the fronts of them or all of the card? I also need to have an address to send them to. Thank you.

I am an environmental educator and would love to have your cards for the workshops I teach to kids, from preschool to high school. I can use the entire card, including the saying inside, which we use for multiple purposes. Also, I can really use everyday cards such as birthday, anniversary, get-well, etc. If you'd like to help, please send your cards to: Earth Inspired Crafts, P. O. Box 1981, Allen, TX 75013-1981. Thanks so much!
Are you a business, using the cards to make money for yourself? You say you are an educator and teach kids, is that your main goal? Just want to know who will benefit from what I donate.
My mother made greeting cards. She passed away in 2008. It's time to let them go. I would like to donate them to a group that could use them to help encourage others. I would like to get a tax deduction if possible. I have 20,000 plus all occasions cards without the envelope. I live in mid Michigan.
Do you just want the front of the cards or the whole card?
