WELCOME TO CARDBOARD CARES

We are an organization in the Alexandria, MN area helping local businesses with their cardboard recycling needs, and in turn, giving back to the area by offering free visual art classes for children. It is a win-win for our community!


Mission Statement

In order to bring visual arts programming to the underserved youth and adults in the Alexandria, MN area, we pledge financial support for teaching artists who offer engaging visual art classes and donate art supplies to children in need in our region. This is accomplished through generous community support via cash and recyclable cardboard donations from local businesses. Those proceeds are then returned to the community in the form of quality visual art instruction at little to no cost to students.
