Senator Jil Tracy is asking 47th District residents to join with her to help uplift the spirits of people living in long-term care facilities by sending them Valentine’s Day cards.
Senator Tracy is encouraging community members, churches, schools, and other groups to participate in the Valentines For Seniors Program, by dropping off Valentine’s Day cards or mailing them to her district offices in Quincy and Macomb. Once the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to residents of the various long-term care facilities in communities across the 47th District.
“2020 was tough for us all, but people living in long-term care facilities have been especially isolated out of concern for their health during the pandemic,” said Senator Tracy. “For their own safety, the residents of these facilities have not been allowed much physical contact with their families and friends, leaving them quite lonely. Our program will let them know that we care about them.”
Valentine’s Day cards will be accepted through Feb. 10. Participants will have the option to either mail their cards to, or drop them off at, Sen. Tracy’s district offices at 3701 East Lake Centre Drive, Suite 3, Quincy, IL 62305; or 331 N. Lafayette Street, Macomb, IL 61455.
For those choosing in-person delivery, please remember to maintain social distancing and to wear masks when entering the offices.
