Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate, consider sending a floating greeting to a DuPage Convalescent Center resident.

For a $3 donation, you can send a Valentine balloon to a Convalescent Center resident to spread cheer and warm wishes. Last year, the public sent more than 800 heart-shaped, helium balloons to line the corridors and rooms on Valentine’s Day. Volunteers and staff delivered the balloons to more than 350 residents living at the Center, brightening their days and bringing lots of smiles along the way.

Balloon donations will be accepted until Wednesday, Feb. 13, and may be sent to: DuPage Convalescent Center, Attn: Valentine Balloons, 400 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, IL 60187.

Balloons will be delivered to residents on Thursday, 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.
