SPRINGFIELD – In an effort to lift the spirits of seniors across the 48th District, State Senator Doris Turner invites residents of all ages to get creative and donate homemade or store-bought valentines.

“Seniors play an important role in our community and writing them a note can remind them they’re appreciated,” said Turner (D-Springfield). “Taking time out of our day to do a little act of kindness can go a long way to make someone feel loved this Valentine’s Day. We’ve had successful card drives in the past, and I hope we can continue making our seniors feel recognized this year.”

Turner is encouraging community members in the area to write Valentine’s Day cards, which can be dropped off or mailed to her Decatur or Springfield district office. Once all the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to various senior facilities in the 48th District.

The collection of Valentine’s Day cards will run through Friday, Feb. 9. Those wishing to participate can drop off or mail cards to Turner’s Springfield office, located at 725 North Grand Ave. E., Springfield, IL 62702 or her Decatur office, located at 1210 S. Jasper St., Decatur, IL 62321.

For more information, residents can contact Turner’s office at 217-782-0228.
