ESCANABA – Recycle greeting cards at a new drop off site – Community Action Agency Adult Day Services, formerly Perspectives Adult Care Center.

Old greeting cards are in need. The pictures on the cards will be used to make notepads, bookmarks, and daily place mats. Cards do not have to be taken apart as the participants of the program like to cut the backs of the cards off. This is a nice activity for those participants who are part of the program.

Greeting cards may be dropped of at the new site located at the Gary Abrahamson Jr. Memory Care Center, 2635 1st Ave. S. in Escanaba. Cards may also be dropped off at any senior center in the Delta County area.

For more information, contact Community Action Agency Adult Day Services at 789-2886.
