valentines johnson 012522WAUKEGAN — To express love and lift the spirits of local seniors, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) is collecting store-bought or hand-made cards to deliver to long-term care facility residents on Valentine’s Day.

“Older adults, especially those who may live far from family, need a chance to connect with others,” Johnson said. “One simple card can deliver so much power.”

Johnson will collect cards at her district office from now until Feb. 11. The cards will then be donated to a number of long-term care facilities across the district she represents. 

People wishing to participate can drop off cards at an outside collection box or mail them to 149 S. Genesee St., Waukegan, IL 60085.

Johnson reminds everyone to maintain social distancing and to wear a mask if choosing to deliver cards in person.
