1Million Meals Volunteer Opportunity
Calling all Volunteers
The School District of Janesville is partnering with other school districts, the City of Janesville, and community organizations for the purpose of creating 1 Million Meals. The event will be held on May 3, 2015, at the Shopko Plaza in Janesville. In 2-hour shifts throughout the day, individuals will work at per-equipped packaging stations of 10 people. Each station will put meals together in packages that are sealed for distribution. The goal is to assemble one million meals to help end hunger locally and globally. Please contact the school office if you or your group are interested in volunteering for this wonderful event at 608-743-7106.
