We have greeting cards!

Many of our supporters may already be familiar with our Holiday Lights project. One can make a contribution to the shelter and provide a list of friends and associates to whom you wish for us to mail a beautiful holiday greeting card. We hand address the envelope and hand write inside from who the card has been sent--you!

Now we have launched another greeting card project that may be accessed any time throughout the year. We have both a Birthday greeting card and a general "in your honor" card.

Ways to request the greeting cards:

1. make an online contribution and indicate that you wish for either a Birthday card or general "in your honor" card to be send to your honoree. You provide the address and designee's name in that process. Complete the online purchase process.

2. make a contribution in person and take a card or two that you can address and mail yourself from home.

The cards are available now. We will be bringing them with us whenever we do speaking engagements, mission fairs, appearances at events.

Much like the Holiday Lights project this provides a meaningful way to say Happy Birthday to or simply contribute in honor of colleagues, friends, church members, family members, teachers, customers, etc.

To see the two cards, you can click on the image of the card on the Home pace /OR/ go to the GIVE HOPE tab and then click the "Contribute to First Light through greeting cards" link. There you can see images of the cards and the messages inside each one.
