As the New Year begins, the Senate Republican Caucus is launching its second annual “Valentines for Seniors” card drive to ensure seniors know they are an important and valued part of the community.
Senator Rezin 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 Rezin’s district offices in Morris and Peru at 1802 N. Division St., Ste 314, Morris, IL and 350 5th St., Ste 264, Peru, IL. Cards can be placed in the Valentines box located inside the office door during business hours, or in a small mailbox that will be placed outside of the office during off-hours. Cards can also be mailed.
In 2021, Senate Republicans collected and delivered more than 45,000 Valentines through the statewide “Valentines for Seniors” program.
