Send a Christmas Card to the Incarcerated

Send a Christmas Card to the Incarcerated


Join in our simple social justice project that your whole Church – from Sunday School to Quilt Group, can do!

  1. Download Christmas cards in various designs. (Here's a tip:  print the cards on cardstock or 28lb. paper if your printer/copier doesn't take get two to a page!)
  2. Not sure what to write?  Here are some Suggested greetings for the cards.
  3. Plan when you will do this:  coffee hour?  Council meetings?  Sunday School?  Prayer groups, book clubs, committee meetings?  We have lots of time to collect cards! Have people in your church or small group fill out the cards with their personal greetings and first name only. Also, no need for envelopes!
  4. Collect all completed cards from your church and mail the cards together (no separate envelopes) to: CBCS, c/o Sheila Peiffer, Coordinator, 40 Lincoln Ave, Wallingford, CT 06492  (CBCS will take care of distributing them to appropriate prison chaplains)
  5. Mail all cards by December 4, 2017. (this gives you time to write the cards on the first Sunday in December, but they must then be mailed the next day at the latest - earlier is better!)

Be sure to only use a first name when signing your card and don’t use a specific greeting since we don’t know who the card will go to.  Cards with last names must be eliminated, so please make sure people know this!

 Thank you in advance for bringing a small measure of joy to these “least of my people”! (Mt 25:40)
