“Whether the cards are bought in a store or made from paper and markers, many older residents could use an extra reminder that they are cared for,” Crowe said. “I encourage families, students, community members and anyone with artistic talent to send in a Valentine’s Day card to spread love to our older neighbors.”

Crowe’s office will collect Valentine’s Day cards through Wednesday, Feb. 10. Once all the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to various long-term care facilities in the community.

Those wishing to participate can mail cards to:

State Senator Rachelle Crowe
35 Executive Plaza Court
Maryville, IL 62062

111 N. Wood River Ave.
Suite A
Wood River, IL 62095

For questions, contact Crowe’s office at (618) 251-9840.
