Nominate a local senior for Valentine’s Day Friendship and Cheer

Emeritus at Deep-Run, a senior living community in the west end, is seeking nominations for its Valentine’s Day Friendship and Cheer contest. A local senior, who otherwise would spend Valentine’s Day alone, will receive a free Valentine’s dinner at home with gifts and friends.

“At the time of year that we celebrate love, it’s important to extend caring and friendship to the senior generation,” said Ruby Jones, executive director of Emeritus at Deep Run. “We know that many will spend Valentine’s Day on their own. For those who have lost spouses, it can be a sad occasion that contributes to feelings of loneliness. Family and friends may live far away, and perhaps physical challenges limit their ability to get out into the greater community. We hope to brighten the day for one of these seniors through festivities and friendship.”

To nominate a senior, submit his or her name and contact information, your contact information and a brief explanation explaining your submission to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or mail it to 1800 Gaskins Rd., Richmond, Va. 23238. Nominations are due by Thursday, Feb. 7.
