SPRINGFIELD- With Valentines Day approaching next month, State Senator Tom Bennett (R-Gibson City) is asking for help to brighten the day of senior citizens across the 53rd Senate District.
“My desire is to make sure that everyone feels remembered and valued on Valentine’s Day, especially those who are living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities,” said Bennett. “Your help is important. By taking a few minutes of your day, you can make a significant impact on someone else’s.”
To achieve his goal, Bennett is asking students, scout groups, churches, and other groups to consider creating homemade cards that will be delivered to nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and other long-term care facilities throughout the 53rd Senate District.
Cards be mailed or dropped off from now until February 5th at Bennett’s district office, which is located at 1715 N. Division St., Morris, Il. 60450. There will be a drop box inside the office during normal business hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There will be a small mailbox outside where cards can be dropped afterhours.
