MURPHYSBORO – As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) is once again launching her “Valentines for Seniors” card drive to help uplift the spirits of long-term care and assisted-living facility residents.

“The last few years have been a very difficult time for the residents of long-term care facilities throughout the state of Illinois,” said Sen. Bryant. “It is my hope that this card drive can bring the residents of these facilities some joy and remind them that people truly do care about them.”

To help with this goal, Bryant is encouraging churches, schools, and community members of the 58th Senate District to write Valentine’s Day cards that can be dropped off or mailed to her district offices. Once all the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to the various long-term care facilities that make up the district.

Cards can be dropped off from now until February 7th at Sen. Bryant’s Murphysboro and Mt. Vernon district offices, which are located at 1032 W. Industrial Park Road, Murphysboro, IL 62966 and 2929 Broadway St., Suite 3, Mt Vernon, IL 62864.
