The Drop is a combined effort to send Christmas Cards, full of joy and love, to people who are in prison. We call it The Drop because on a set day before Christmas everyone who signs up to write cards will “drop” the cards in the mail on that day. We do this to flood the prisons with cards of hope and joy of the Christmas spirit.
It began in 2017 with an initial goal of 1,000 Christmas Cards, then quickly went to 2,000 cards, and we ended with over 3,000 Christmas Cards being sent to those in prison.
Our goal this year is 5,000 Christmas Cards for those in Ohio Prisons this Holiday Season.
Prisoners probably aren’t at the top of many Christmas card lists. There is a reason that each person is in prison, however, that does not mean they are undeserving of love and compassion. The holiday season can be an especially lonely and difficult time for people who are in prison. For many, the card we send may be the only piece of mail they will receive all year. Christmas is the time of year that every person, no matter where they are, deserve some holiday cheer.
