PLAINFIELD – To spread holiday cheer, State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel is hosting a holiday card drive for seniors across the community.

“We often lose track of what’s most important this season – and that’s spreading joy,” said Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood). “Everyone enjoys a small yet meaningful act of kindness during the holidays.”

Loughran Cappel is collecting store bought and handmade cards for local seniors this holiday season. People are encouraged to write kind notes and drop them off or mail them to her district office, located at 2009 Illinois Rte. 59, Plainfield, IL 60586. She is collecting cards until Dec. 16 and then will deliver them to local long-term care facilities.

Loughran Cappel encourages teachers and students to participate in the seasonal event.

“As a former teacher, I saw how excited students are to do crafts, and that there is a learning aspect to each activity,” Loughran Cappel said. “The holiday season is about making a difference in people’s lives, even if you don’t know them personally. I hope teachers and residents will take advantage of this opportunity.”

People with questions can reach out to Loughran Cappel’s office at 815-267-6119.
