Senator Turner Brings Back Valentine's Cards for Seniors

State Senator Doris Turner is beginning a heartfelt initiative to uplift the spirits of seniors in the 48th District this Valentine's Day. Turner is urging community members of all ages to contribute by crafting or purchasing Valentine's Day cards for seniors. Emphasizing the importance of recognizing seniors' contributions to the community, Turner believes that a simple note can convey appreciation and make a significant impact.


Having successfully organized card drives in the past, Turner hopes to continue the tradition this year, encouraging residents to engage in acts of kindness to spread love. The initiative invites participants to drop off or mail their homemade or store-bought valentines to Turner's Decatur or Springfield district office. All collected cards will be distributed to various senior facilities within the 48th District, aiming to make seniors feel acknowledged and loved.


The Valentine's Day card collection will continue until Friday, Feb. 9, providing ample time for community members to participate. Those interested in contributing can deliver or send their cards to Turner's Springfield office at 725 North Grand Ave. E., Springfield, IL 62702, or her Decatur office at 1210 S. Jasper St., Decatur, IL 62321. For additional information, residents can contact Turner's office at 217-782-0228. This initiative reflects a community-driven effort to bring joy to seniors during the Valentine's season.
