On Dec. 16, community members turned out to help students in Janesville through our Delivering Bags of Hope food delivery event. The goal was to provide 350 families and 50 senior citizens food and groceries over the holiday season, and we surpassed that goal!

Thanks to community partners Dollar General, Festival Foods, Seneca, and the city of Janesville. We also thank Lamar Advertising; Blackhawk Community Credit Union; Rock Around the Block; Barkley’s Burgers, Brews and Dawgs; Gray’s Brewing; Alpha Baking; Rock County Dairy Council/ Country Quality Dairy; Tim and Barb Cullen; Kwik Trip; SSM Health; Rhyme Business; Walmart/Sam’s Club; Rock Road/Kennedy Family Foundation; and the Janesville Jets/Oakleigh and Tobin Ryan.

Another thank-you to our School District of Janesville employees and students!

Finally, we thank the volunteers who turned out to help.
