Valentine's day card drive

We are collecting Valentine's Day cards for senior living communities in the Chicago area. These cards aren't addressed to anyone specific and should be signed with simply one's first name. The cards are meant to make someone feel loved and thought of this Valentine's Day. Cards can be home-made or store bought. Finished cards can be sent to our P.O. Box. For more information email us at penpalsocial@gmail.com to get involved.


A huge thank you to all of the help and kind words. We collected 1,817 cards this holiday season, surpassing our original goal of 500. All cards were delivered to JourneyCare, Alden Estates, Sunrise, Garlands of Barrington, Solana, Lexington, and McGaw senior care facilities in the Chicagoland area. We can't wait to see what next season holds!

About Us


The Covid-19 Pandemic turned everyone lives upside down. With volunteer opportunities and jobs shutting down, we wanted to find a way to support the community. After our grandparents passed away from Covid-19, they inspired us to establish a pen pal program help seniors combat loneliness in honor of them.
