favorite this post Donate New Greeting Cards to Inmates to Send to Their Families (St. Cloud) hide this posting unhide



Getting your life back on track often depends on a supportive family. Inmates don't have a lot of options for staying in touch with family members: phone calls are outrageously expensive, visits are often inconvenient for the family member, inmates aren't allowed internet access, and many people aren't comfortable writing letters. So sending greeting cards which articulate one's love for loved ones may be one of the primary ways to keep the connection strong. If you are interested in sending unused greeting cards to an inmate who oversees a prison greeting card ministry, he will then distribute them to needy inmates
Cards for specific holidays such as Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, etc. are particularly needed which many donors purchase from a Dollar Store. Other cards which you have in stock such as birthday and Christmas cards are also appreciated. Blank cards are not generally used.

I am a retired librarian and have donated cards to this inmate for several years but the demand is far higher than I can personally meet. He is a devout Christian and very sincere in his desire to help out his fellow inmates. You will need to send the cards directly to the inmate, because l cannot afford to send cards, other than my own. Please contact me for details. Many thanks!
