HARRISBURG, IL – With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, State Senator Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) is once again working to make sure that senior citizens aren’t forgotten with his annual “Valentines for Seniors” card drive.

“Ever since we started this program, we have had great success in making sure our area seniors feel the love on Valentine’s Day,” said Senator Fowler. “That’s why this year I am asking for the 59th District’s help again in making sure our local seniors don’t feel forgotten about or lonely this Valentine’s Day.” 

To help with this goal, Sen. Fowler is asking students, scout groups, churches, families, 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 59th Senate District.

Cards can be dropped off from now until February 7th at Sen. Fowler’s district office at 2 North Vine, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, IL 62946. There will be a drop box inside the office during normal business hours, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. A small mailbox will be located outside the office for after hour drop-offs.

In 2022, members of the Senate Republican Caucus collected and delivered more than 45,000 Valentines through the program.
