As a recent guest on WCSJ’s People R Talking, Community Foundation Executive Director Julie Buck invited the community to submit names of Grundy County senior citizens, in need of some Christmas cheer, and encouraged citizens to adopt one or more seniors, as well. 

Names of seniors in need of adoption can be selected, from the Christmas tree at either Morris Library or Minooka Library, and all their wrapped and labeled gift deliveries go to the CFGC office. 

The community has from December 3rd until December 16th to purchase, wrap, label, and deliver gifts to CFGC, at 520 W. Illinois Avenue. Volunteers will be delivering gifts the week of December 19th. For questions, email Julie Buck at: julie@cfgrundycounty.com, or call 815-941-0852. Online forms to submit a name for Adopt-a-Senior Christmas are at: cfgrundycounty.com.
