Grundy County Heroes and Helpers
Grundy County Heroes & Helpers Inc (hereafter known as GCHH) is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization that consist of first responders, their families, and community volunteers who dedicate their time to help children and families in Grundy County, Illinois. Our main focus is to help these families while they are enduring loss, trauma, poverty and hardships by giving them a special day in December with our Local Heroes.
GCHH is funded by donations, grants and fundraising events throughout the year from the public. All funds collected go towards the annual event in December where first responders (Police, Deputies, Fire & EMT) partnered with a volunteer and a child(ren) in need to purchase necessities. These necessities include coates, hats, gloves, boots, shoes, etc. Additionally, the child(ren) and their families attend a luncheon with Santa where they eat a meal with their heroes and pick out toys collected throughout the year from toy drives. It is a day where families are lifted up by their community.
