State Senator Doris Turner is hosting a holiday card drive for seniors in an effort to spread holiday cheer. Senator Turner says that because we get so busy during the holidays we often forget what it’s about and that’s spreading joy. Senator Turner is collecting store-bought and handmade cards for local seniors this holiday season. People are encouraged to write kind notes and drop them off or mail them to her Springfield Office, located at 725 North Grand Avenue E. Springfield, Illinois 62702, or in Decatur at 1210 South Jasper Street, Decatur, Illinois 62321. She is collecting cards until December 15th and will deliver them to local long-term care facilities.
The State Senator encourages teachers and students to participate in this seasonal event and she says it’s a good way to make a difference in someone’s life, even if you don’t know them personally. Anyone with questions is encouraged to reach out to Senator Turner’s Office at 782-0228.
