Many of our Richardson residents are currently living in senior facilities and have been isolated due to visitor restrictions during the COVID pandemic. In the hopes of spreading a little joy, we are asking you to  create Valentine’s Day card(s) for our special seniors! The Cottonwood Art Festival staff’s goal is to collect over 800 cards and disperse them to several senior living facilities leading up to Valentine’s Day.


How to Participate

Get your Art on and create a handmade card(s) using construction paper, stickers, ribbon, hot glue, etc., or purchase a store-bought card, which is just as special! Write a short message inside, draw a picture or share whatever inspires you. Something as simple as “I am thinking of you and sending love your way” or “Hello Friend! I am thinking of you today!”  will certainly bring a smile to someone on Valentine’s Day. Blank envelopes are not needed for individual cards.

Where do I send my card(s)?


Once completed, mail your card(s) to the following address.  Multiple cards can be mailed in one envelope.

Cottonwood Art Festival
2100 E. Campbell Rd. Suite 100
Richardson, TX 75081

Or you can turn them into one of the following City of Richardson facilities:

Community Events – 2100 E. Campbell Rd. Suite 100, Richardson, TX 75081(behind the Municipal Courts Building)
