New Charity Cause

I used to stamp cards for the Troops and many of you helped by providing ready made cards or coming to my events to make these cards.  Due to Troop withdrawal over the past few years the Organizations that provided these cards have dissolved.  I have a few options for these leftover cards and will be mailing those out after Christmas.........

But I have found a LOCAL cause that needs cards!!  I was looking for a Volunteer opportunity at Harvester's and clicked Off Site and they provide cards with EVERY Family box they deliver!!  I had NO IDEA!! 

Harvesters needs 5000 cards between Oct 19th 2016 and Jan 14th 2017.  I want to donate at least 100 cards before their next deadline January 13th.  So if you have some cards you would like to donate please let me know and you can drop them off at the next Stamp A Stack January 7th. 

They need Thinking of you type cards.  Since these will be delivered in the Winter maybe some Snow men or Winter Scenes, Snow Flakes etc.  No Religious or Political messages are allowed.
If you want to leave the inside of the card BLANK I can add an appropriate sentiment before I deliver the cards.

NEXT YEAR I want to be more organized and provide more cards for the Christmas Season.  So before you store those leftovers away make a few Holiday cards to be donated next year!  And bring them by to any event you attend in 2017.  Here is the text from Harvester's site:

Project Description:
Each month, Harvesters distributes nearly 5,000 CSFP food boxes to food insecure seniors. These boxes include shelf stable items like cereal, pasta, canned vegetables, and juices. Please help us share an upbeat messages in each one of these boxes during the holiday season. You can scrapbook a card, color a picture, or simply write a handwritten note. Any quantity of cards will gladly be accepted. This is great project for individuals or groups (faith-based, schools, service organization, etc.). 

  • Please be sure to include positive messages.
  • Let them know you are thinking about them.
  • Phrases like “Happy Holidays”, “Seasons Greetings”, and “Happy New Year” are fine.
  • Please do not include any messages that are proselytizing and specific religious references.
  • Please do not include political messages.

Cards can be dropped off or mailed to:
