For the past few years, Massasoit has been collecting used greeting cards and donating them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, This organization had upcycled used greeting cards into new ones which they sold to benefit programs and services for abused, neglected, and homeless children, young adults, and families.
As of July 1, 2017, St. Jude’s Ranch has discontinued its greeting card recycling program. Therefore, unless we can find another worthwhile cause that will accept them for recycling, Massasoit will no longer be collecting used cards. Thank you to all staff members who have participated in the program over the years.
We have donated the cards we had collected and not yet sent for recycling by St. Jude’s Ranch to Massasoit’s Children’s Center, which will use them in arts and crafts projects. Please be sure to recycle your used cards at home or find a way to repurpose them (perhaps by donating them to another day care center or a scout troop) and continue to keep them out of the waste stream.
