Senator Turner

SPRINGFIELD – To express love and lift the spirits of local seniors, State Senator Doris Turner is collecting store bought or handmade cards to deliver to long-term care facility residents for Valentine’s Day.

“Seniors are a big part of our community and writing them a note can remind them they’re appreciated,” said Turner (D-Springfield). “Taking time out of our days to do a little act of kindness can go a long way to make someone to feel loved this Valentine’s Day.”

Turner is collecting store bought and handmade cards for local seniors. People are encouraged to write kind notes and drop them off or mail them to her district offices, located at 401 S. Spring St. Section F, Room B Springfield, IL 62706 or 1210 S. Jasper St. Decatur, IL 62321. She is collecting cards until Feb. 10 and then will deliver them to local long-term care facilities.
