Cards for Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati

From Carrie Phelps:  This is something I have done with the Activity Day girls and was a great service project for anyone who likes to do cards or scrapbooking:

They have lots of volunteer opportunities like scrapbook buddies, care packages, quilts and making "ouch buddies", but we made cards because it was cheap. I just packaged them up and sent them off. The shipping wasn't too bad.

Greeting Cards

Happy birthday! I miss you. Get well soon. Thank you.

Who doesn't love receiving – or sending – greeting cards? It means someone has been thinking about you. For the families living at Ronald McDonald House, being able to keep in touch with friends and family back home is important. Sentiments expressed on a homemade card seem to make the message even more special.

Donations of greeting cards are always appreciated. Not only do our families use them, but our staff and volunteers send out a lot of thank you cards to our very generous donors. Your help in supplying unique, handmade cards is always appreciated.

We're not picky. We love cards of any medium, design or colors. Cards can be simple or as elaborate as your talents will allow. The only thing we do ask is that you do include an envelope for each card.

Our favorite cards are blank inside so that they can be used for any occasion. We also have a great need for thank you designs, birthday and holiday cards, and of course, get well cards.

A donation of stamps would also be greatly appreciated.

Cards can be dropped off at our House any day between 9 AM and 9 PM. There is no need to call ahead unless you'd like to have a tour. In that case, just let us know when you'd like to come in, and we'll be sure to arrange it. Don't forget to fill out a donation form or have community service forms signed while you are here.

Thank you again for helping us truly provide a "home away from home" for our guest families.
