Serving Those in Need
With over 50 organizations to choose from, there is no shortage of opportunities for residents to get involved and give back to the community. The spirit of giving is strong in Grundy County with frequent activities created to support individuals in need as well as improvements throughout the area.
This spirit of helping others is an integral part of the region’s history and is best exemplified through the example set by Bert and Rose Hoover. The Hoover’s were committed to the betterment of their neighbors and community through the use of their own time and money. The legacy of their generosity led to the development of The Bert and Rose Hoover Foundation. Founded in 1994, the Hoover Foundation continues to support positive community development through their annual grant program.
