House Republican Leader and State Representative Tony McCombie (89th District- Savanna) is asking Northwest Illinois residents to join her in helping to lift the spirits of residents in long-term care facilities by making Valentine’s Day cards to share with seniors.
McCombie is encouraging community members, church groups, schools, and residents to participate in the Card Drive by dropping off Valentine’s Day cards or mailing them to her district office in Savanna. Once the cards are collected, they will be delivered to residents of the various long-term care facilities in communities in Northwest Illinois.
“The pandemic really drove home the need for more community-centered engagement with our treasured residents who reside in long-term care facilities,” said McCombie. “Isolation not only means many long days for seniors without little outside interaction, but isolation also negatively affects health outcomes. Let’s show these community pillars how much we care and are thinking about them in a way to make them feel special.”
Valentine’s Day cards will be accepted through Tuesday, February 7. Participants may deliver or mail cards to State Representative Tony McCombie, 9317B IL Rt 84, Savanna, IL 61074.
