The Community Foundation of Grundy County is holding an Adopt-a-Senior event this holiday.

The community is invited to a) submit names of Grundy County, IL, senior citizens who need some Christmas cheer and b) adopt a senior by selecting a name (or more) from the tree at Morris or Minooka Library; buying, wrapping, & labeling gifts; and delivering labeled gifts to the Foundation office.

Julianne Buck,

You may submit names of Grundy Seniors and gift ideas by Friday, September 2nd here.

Starting December 3rd, you can adopt a senior by getting a name here at the library. You will then have until December 16th to purchase, wrap, label, and deliver the gifts to either to the library, or at the Community Foundation at 52 W. Illinois Ave in Morris.

Volunteers will begin delivering the gifts starting December 19th.

Julianne Buck is available to answer your questions about the program by emailing her at or calling 815-941-0852.
