As the New Year begins, the Senate Republican Caucus is launching its annual “Valentines for Seniors” card drive to let senior citizens know they are an important and valued part of the community.
State Senator Brian Stewart is asking students from public and private schools, church groups, Scouting organizations and other groups to create homemade cards that will be delivered to assisted living centers, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities across the state.
Cards, poems, and other well-wishes will be collected between now and Monday, February 7th, at Stewart’s 45th District office, located at 50 W. Douglas St., Suite 1001, in Freeport. Cards can be delivered in person or also mailed to the district office. Call 815-284-0045 for more information.
In 2021, Senate Republicans collected and delivered more than 45,000 Valentines through the statewide “Valentines for Seniors” program.
