Send Valentine wishes to DuPage Care Center residents

-

DuPage County Report

The DuPage Care Center is offering the community an opportunity to send Valentine wishes to Center residents.

The DuPage Care Center is also providing Valentine’s balloons to residents to spread cheer and warm wishes. For $4.50 per balloon, community members can send a balloon to a Care Center resident. In the past, the public sent more than 800 heart-shaped, helium balloons to line the Care Center’s corridors and rooms on Valentine’s Day. Volunteers and staff delivered the balloons to more than 300 residents living at the Center, brightening their days, and bringing lots of smiles along the way. The balloons are recycled after being used.

“Every year, this fundraiser brings smiles to residents’ faces and helps to warm their hearts and lift their spirits,” said Greg Schwarze, Chair of the Human Services Committee. “It’s a great tradition and we are excited about continuing it this year.”

Balloon donations will be accepted until Feb. 10 and may be ordered online at dpccfoundation.org. Balloons will be delivered on Feb. 14.

Funds from the sale of balloons will benefit the Resident Recreation Fund, which provides programs and activities to improve the quality of life of residents living at the Center.
