A new endowment has been established in memory of the former Grundy County Board Technology Director.

Executive Director Julie Buck with the Community Foundation of Grundy County on Tuesday said they are proud to partner with Boy Scout Troop 469 in Morris, IL to announce the new Boy Scout Troop 469 Tim Doss Memorial Endowment.

Scoutmaster Tim Doss died suddenly in April of this year. Buck said Troop 469 is proud to start this endowment in his memory to forever support Troop 469 with scout scholarships, leader training, and equipment.

Donations to this endowment can be made online, by mail, or in person at 520 W. Illinois Avenue, Morris, IL 60450. Buck said if you send a check, please put "Community Foundation of GC" in the "to" line and "Tim Doss Memorial" in the memo line.

Buck also said at this time of Thanksgiving, we are thankful for the members of our county like Doss who volunteer to make our county a great place to live, recreate, work, worship, play, and shop.
