With Valentine’s Day just over a month away, State Senator Jason Plummer (Edwardsville) is once again working to make sure that senior citizens aren’t forgotten, with his annual “Valentines for Seniors” card drive.
“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 55th District.
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. The office is open 8:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. Monday through Friday. Cards can also be mailed..
In 2022, members of the Senate Republican Caucus collected and delivered more than 20,000 Valentines through the program.
