    The School District of Janesville will hold its 15th annual Delivering Bags of Hope food distribution event Dec. 14, 2024.

    This initiative provides more than 350 SDJ families and 50 Janesville senior citizens with two weeks’ worth of groceries during the winter break -- a time when children cannot rely on free school meals and seniors are often low on funds as the year ends.

    The distribution event takes place at the Dollar General warehouse in Janesville, where about 250 Janesville area volunteers sort, bag, pack and deliver groceries to families' homes.

    Unfortunately, the Janesville community observes a poverty level higher than 50% in the school district, and many families struggle to make ends meet.

    This challenge makes our efforts to feed families more important than ever before. Delivering Bags of Hope not only provides necessary nutrition to children who need it but also gives hope to families over the holidays. Having food on the table means one less worry and gives families the freedom to enjoy the holidays and their time together.

    With the generous support of our primary sponsors -- Festival Foods, Dollar General,  Seneca Foods, Alliant Energy Foundation, Steve Stricker/American Family Foundation, and Kwik Trip -- we are able to leverage your donation into so much more! Every $100 donated will go to support one family for two week’s worth of groceries.

    Your support is appreciated! Together we can make a difference!
