Senator Plummer and his staff are hoping to brighten the days of senior citizens who are living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities through his Valentines for Seniors program.
“This is a chance to let our seniors know that not only are they not forgotten, but that they are loved,” said Senator Plummer. “We need your help to get as many valentines together as we can so that we brighten the days of as many seniors as possible.”
Senator Plummer 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 Feb. 7 at Senator Plummer’s office, located at 310 W. Gallatin St., Vandalia, Il. Cards can also be mailed.
In 2021, members of the Illinois Senate Republican caucus collected and delivered more than 45,000 Valentines through the statewide “Valentines for Seniors” program.
