The St. Lawrence County Office for the Aging and the county’s Youth Bureau over-see a wonderful program each year to bring joy to senior citizens.

The two agencies jointly operate a Valentine’s Day card drive. Students in kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to write cards to elderly individuals. The cards are then distributed to seniors through the Office for the Aging’s home delivery meal service.
