Packages of cards can be sent to St Jude's Ranch for Children, Recycled Card Program, 100 St. Jude's Street, Boulder City, NV 89005. A U.S. Postal Service Flat Rate Box is the most economical way to send large quantities of cards. St Jude's does not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greetings brand cards. The charity advises not to send cards that have writing on the backside of the front of the card.

Alternatively, cards can usually be recycled in the same way as paper via a local recycling center or curbside collection program, or reused in a variety of craft activities.
