Halpin ValentinesDayCardsforSeniors 2024

GALESBURG – State Senator Mike Halpin is launching a Valentine’s Day card drive for Galesburg residents living in long-term care facilities.

“We want to make sure that our seniors get the appreciation they deserve on Valentine’s Day,” said Halpin (D-Rock Island). “I believe that it’s important to start off the new year by reminding our seniors that they are valued and recognized.”

Halpin is encouraging community members in the Galesburg area to write Valentine’s Day cards, which can be dropped off or mailed to his Galesburg constituent service office. Once all the cards have been collected, they will be delivered to senior facilities in Knox County.

The collection of Valentine’s Day cards will run through Friday, Feb. 9. Those wishing to participate can drop off or mail cards to Halpin’s Galesburg office, located at 117 E. Main. St., Suite 103, Galesburg, IL 61401.

For more information or questions, residents can reach out to Halpin’s Galesburg office at (309) 297-4483.
