Create Birthday Cards for Older Adults

Save to Favorites


2015 logo

DOROT’s Cardmaking Program helps bring joy to DOROT elders. Each month, DOROT mails over 250 birthday cards to older adults. Sometimes, this card is the only recognition an older adult receives on his or her birthday. We also share cards during home visiting programs in the winter months. Each card is designed and created by you, our volunteers and that is what makes them special. We accept donations of birthday cards throughout the year. Once we receive your cards, we send them on to older adults.

We also recommend that you look at the guidelines on our website to get card design tips and information on the types of supplies you will need.

All cards should be returned to DOROT with a completed Cardmaking Project Form. Copy the following link into your search bar to find this: https://www.dorotusa.org/sites/default/files/inline-files/Caring%20Cardmaking%20Project%20Information%20Form.pdf

Please note - This is an opportunity that takes place in your own home, organization, or work place. It does not take place at DOROT's offices. However, we do occasionally offer group programs at DOROT that include the card making project. Call DOROT for more information at 212-769-2850
