Delivering Bags of Hope

The School District of Janesville (SDJ) will hold the 5th Annual Community Food Supply Event, “Delivering Bags of Hope” on Saturday, December 14, 2013. SDJ social workers compile a list of families that will receive the donated items. The goal is to supply families with two weeks of groceries. 

Staff, students, community members and businesses donated over $40,000 to the event last year. Local businesses donated food products, the distribution site and materials to the drive.

Last year, the generosity of our community allowed us to distribute groceries to over 350 families and 50 senior citizens across the community. The School District of Janesville is hopeful to serve as many families and senior citizens this year.

To be included in this year’s donation, please submit cash or check only by Friday, November 22, 2013.

Checks may be made out to the School District of Janesville and delivered to any school office or the Educational Services Center, 527 S. Franklin St., Janesville, WI 53548, care of Denise Jensen.

Receipts will be given so contributors may claim donations on their taxes.

Please call 608-743-5055 with questions.
