Valentine’s Day is approaching and you can help bring love and joy to residents who live in Buckner senior living communities with a special Valentine Card. Senior adults are one of the most at-risk populations of the COVID-19 virus. By sending Valentine cards, letters and drawings, you can help keep senior adults’ spirits high during this time of social distancing.
“Whether you buy a card from the store or send a handmade Valentine, each show of support sent to our Buckner communities will be greatly appreciated by a senior adult,” said Charlie Wilson, senior vice president of Buckner Retirement Services. “Any mail received at our communities will be safely distributed to residents and associates.”
You can also send cards to community employees to show support for the frontline heroes serving senior adults throughout the pandemic.
How do I send letters to senior adults?
Only paper mail fitting in traditional envelopes will be received; packages containing goods and products will not be accepted for the safety of the residents.
Letters can be addressed to residents by using “Inspiring Happiness for Resident c/o” or to employees by using “Inspiring Happiness for Staff c/o” followed by any of the following addresses:

Inspire happiness through letters
In March 2020, the restriction of visitors to Buckner senior living communities prompted more than 1,000 pieces of mail to be delivered to seniors across Texas.
“The support our senior adults received in 2020 was truly inspiring,” Wilson said. “Across the nation people are helping inspire happiness in the lives of our residents and I am excited for them to continue receive letters and cards of encouragement and support.”
