Northwestern College Makes 250 Handmade Valentines for Des Plaines Seniors

Northwestern College Makes 250 Handmade Valentines for Des Plaines Seniors

[Rosemont, IL]  Employees of Northwestern College’s Rosemont Administrative Office decided to make handmade Valentine’s Day cards for seniors at a Des Plaines nursing home in order to bring some cheer to them on this holiday.  In total, 250 valentines were created and delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.

Northwestern College’s Rosemont Administrative Office employs just 21 of the College’s 250 employees.  With merely three days’ notice the staff pooled its artistic talents to create 250 handmade individual valentines, in addition to covering their daily employment duties. Paper, markers, crayons, colored pencils, scissors, and glue appeared in the break-room, where each employee created their own personal sentiments to be shared with the seniors. 

While some employees created valentines that Hallmark would take notice of, others evidenced that they shouldn’t quit their day jobs.  But every valentine was created with a special person in mind, in hopes that the colorful cards would bring smiles to everyone’s faces!
