Current Needs of Volunteers

My hospitals are accepting cards. I need holiday, thinking of you/hello and thank you cards. Blank/no sentiment cards work well, too! Thank you for all your cards!  Kris

You are all so generous with your cards! I have received enough Halloween cards for this year and perhaps next year, too. I don't need many more Christmas cards. I especially need Hanukkah and Kwanzaa cards, as well as some Thanksgiving cards and winter-themed cards (regular themes with winter images and/or papers or Happy Winter/Snow much fun, etc.). Hanukkah is in November this year, but I will keep any cards received later than that for next year. Thank you so much! Jen

News not very great here either as one hospital still not accepting cards and the other is much smaller. I delivered hundreds of general cheer cards last month to them, and have enough Fall and Winter cards for them at this time as well.  Nothing needed at this time.  Thank you and stay safe. ♥ Dena

I wish I had better news but I am still on hold from my hospitals. I miss my volunteers, but we'll have to be patient a little longer.

I am currently working with only a few selected donors as I don't need as many cards as I used to.  If you are on my mailing list, I am referring to you.  Thank you for your cards and support.

I am in need of Mother's and Father's Day cards for my hospitals. I can always use thank you and just general cards as well.  Thank you.  Stay Strong!, Angie - SD


Please check back here every so often for updates and current needs from our volunteers and thank you for all you have done for SAS4Kids in the past! Stay safe and healthy! 


If your favorite volunteer to send cards to is temporarily not accepting cards, there are several of our volunteers who do need your cards. And here are other suggestions as to what you can do with your handmade cards: Many nursing homes are accepting and extremely grateful for handmade cards- signed with a message- for their seniors who are so isolated right now. Check with your local nursing homes or go on line to the Facebook group "Because Kindness" where requests such as this are posted for cards to help spread some cheer. Veteran's Hospitals also use cards – both signed and blank. Check with your local VA to find out their needs. You can also check out this call for cards:

  2. You just need to check the correct page- in this case, the Contact page gives all the addresses. Yes, please send envelopes with your cards.

  3. Hello : Do the requirements from 7-Nov, 9-Nov, 20-Nov still hold good? Can we still make these cards and send to them?

    1. Yes you can. The current needs page is updated every month or two, except for the volunteers who are "on hold" due to Covid-19. When their hospitals begin accepting cards, their needs will be updated as well. Thank you!
