CARD RECYCLING DRIVE
KIC Accepts New and Used Any-Occasion Greeting Cards
on behalf of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children!
Keep Islip Clean is collecting cards that will be used by volunteers at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children to make new, “green” cards. These recycled cards are sold to support their programs for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families.
How It Works:
Children at the Ranch help make new cards by using the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by children and volunteers.
What Type of Card Can Be Donated:
Cards for any occasion will be accepted, with the exception of photos or inappropriate material. Remember, children are using these cards!
In addition, we also accept new cards/envelopes that will be used for a letter writing campaign to soldiers overseas. Please leave these cards intact.
How to Prepare Cards:
Cards for any occasion can be collected, but only the front of the card can be used. Neatly remove the card fronts and be sure they are clear of any writing or they cannot be made into useable cards! Leave new cards intact and with their envelopes.
*Important Note: Groups collecting a large number of cards should contact the KIC office for additional sorting details!
Drop Cards Off:

Drive ends Tuesday, January 31st.
