Valentines Day Cards for Seniors.pdfCHICAGO – In an effort to lift the spirits of seniors in the 8th District, State Senator Ram Villivalam invites residents of all ages to get creative and donate homemade or store-bought valentines.

“Writing a note or a card goes a long way toward supporting the seniors in our community,” said Villivalam (D-Chicago). “We want to spread a little cheer this year and help uplift the spirits of seniors in our community, and I strongly encourage everyone who is able to send a card and join us in reminding them of how important they are to our community.”

Villivalam is encouraging community members in the area to write Valentine’s Day cards for local seniors, which can be dropped off or mailed to his district office. Once all the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to various senior facilities in the 8th District.

The collection of Valentine’s Day cards will run through Friday, Feb. 9. Those wishing to participate can drop off cards at Villivalam’s office or mail them to 3851 W. Devon Ave., Chicago, IL 60659.

For more information, residents can contact Villivalam’s office at (872) 208-5188 or
