Card making img

We need you, your family, your friends, and your organizations to provide handmade holiday cards for the incarcerated men of the two Concord prisons.

THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT FOR FAMILIES, YOUTH AND SENIOR GROUPS. BE CREATIVE, PLAY AND HAVE FUN!  CREATE ONE CARD OR A BUNCH!

However, we must abide by the Department of Correction (DOC) rules for anything we distribute to the incarcerated men.  Therefore, in making your handmade cards we ask you to abide by the following:

DO:

  1. Be creative.  Use paper or card stock (no larger than 8.5 x 5.5), crayons, markers, paint,
  2. colored pencils or pens.
  3. Sign the card – first name only – and, if you wish, include a non-religious message.

PLEASE AVOID:

  • Metal or sharp objects (sequins, pins, etc.), natural fibers (grasses, flowers, etc.)
  • and potato prints.
  • Any type of glue or tape.
  • Stickers of any kind.

Drop-off Dates

Cards may be dropped off at Trinity Episcopal Church, 81 Elm St., Concord, MA between     Nov. 28th and Dec. 4th.
Cards may be mailed before Dec. 5th to:  Concord Prison Outreach, PO Box 383, Concord, MA  01742.

These handmade cards provide the incarcerated men with a message of caring and hope. With your help we can do this again.  Remember — your card may be the only holiday card an incarcerated man receives this year.
