Cards for caregivers

Community members are encouraged to write cards, and notes to staff. Our staff appreciate and welcome any encouraging messages!

By mail

  • Mail a note or card to:
    • Attn: Cards for Caregivers, St. Joseph Medical Center, 1717 South J Street, Tacoma, WA 98405
    • If your card or note needs to go to a specific facility, please write or type it into the Attn.: line, such as “Card for Caregivers at St Clare.”
  • Please don’t mail cards to individual hospitals. The St. Joseph mailroom has the capacity to handle cards for all hospitals. If you don’t have a specific facility you’d like to support, our staff will ensure that all hospitals receive notes of encouragement and thanks.

Drop off

  • Cards or notes can be dropped off at donation stations for all in-kind donations. Cards will be forwarded to the St Joseph mail room for sorting and distribution.
  • Boxes or bags of cards need to be clearly labeled with “Cards for Caregivers.” If there is an intended recipient, please note that on the box or envelope, such as “Card for Caregivers at Harrison Medical Center.”

Emails

  • Thank yous can also be sent virtually to: [email protected].
    • If you’re sending a photo, please sign and send a consent form that gives Virginia Mason Franciscan Health your permission to post your photo on our website or in social media. Download a consent form.
