United Way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with seniors

The Jackson County United Way (JCUW) is collaborating with local schools and businesses to prepare greetings for the Senior Citizens of Jackson County in honor of Valentine’s Day. Sean Hildreth, resource development director for the JCUW, says we must also be aware of those who might face loneliness on this day.

Hildreth says that, in partnership with Seymour Community Schools and AISIN USA, special Valentine’s Day cards, bookmarks, and greetings are being prepared to share with area seniors. He explains that students from Redding, Cortland, and Jackson Elementary are preparing cards as a way for them to give back to their community. Hildreth says that volunteers at AISIN are creating Valentine’s in conjunction with an appreciation event for JCUW donors. After the Valentines are assembled, Hildreth says volunteers will deliver them on February 12.

Hildreth says that the JCUW supports senior citizens in Brownstown, Crothersville, Freetown, Medora, and Seymour. If you are interested volunteering, you are asked to call the United Way office at (812) 522-5450.
