Donate Your Used Greeting Cards

Fri, 05/29/2015

Recycle your used greeting cards for a good cause. The library is collecting cards to send to St. Jude’s Ranch – an organization that helps abused and at-risk children. The children will use the covers to make new cards to sell to support the program.

Birthday and Thank You cards are especially needed. 

Drop off your cards in the bin by the elevator and stairs in the lobby during the month of June.
