(WEEK) - We’ve all been affected by COVID, one way or another.
Imagine if you were cut off from your own family for months? It appears that’s something Central Illinois can understand, because you all stepped up.
Our Lifting Spirits Letter Drive is an amazing success, warming hearts of people who find themselves alone.
We put out a request about three weeks ago asking for cards for residents of long-term care facilities.
We wanted to let them know we are thinking about them during a tough time. For nearly a year, they haven't been able to see their loved ones in person because of COVID.
You answered the call. Hundreds of cards poured in from viewers, students and organizations.
They continue to come in. We have collected about 1,900 cards so far.
If you would like to help, send cards to: 2907 Springfield Road, East Peoria, 61611.
