Those still looking to send the perfect Christmas card to their loved ones can look no further. Spread Christmas joy to friends and family near and far, and help your local community at the same time.


The Nutritional Development Services (NDS) within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is offering their annual custom Christmas cards sold in packs of 10 or 20 for $15 and $25 respectively. The 5” x 7” cards are printed on high quality paper and come in eight different designs created by local artist Patty Smith. You may also choose variety packs if you like each design. Designs range from Nativity scenes to angels to Christmas trees with scripture verses and Catholic themes inside to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. 


All proceeds directly benefit NDS’s Community Food Program. This program provides support to the network of food pantries within the Philadelphia region, benefiting the community as a whole. 


Christmas may be rapidly approaching, but there is still time to support NDS and send Christmas cheer to everyone on your list.
