SUBJECT 1: WIC Birthday Cards for Children 1-5 Years Old (WIC 437). The WIC State Office developed a series of four birthday cards with pre-paid postage to assist local agency staff with child retention. These cards, which were designed to celebrate the birthday of children 1-5 years old, include information on WIC benefits:
- supplemental foods
- nutrition education
- health screenings
- breastfeeding support
The cards are available in English, which is viewable on the website here. When ordering from the warehouse, each packet will contain a total of 100 cards with 4 different designs (25 cards of each design).
All local WIC coordinators will receive a link from Takako Tagami on December 27, 2016 to order the initial shipment. After your agency receives the initial shipment, additional cards will be available for order on the WIC 8 form (12/16 version).
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact D'Anne Ward at 1-800-392-8209 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
