Christmas for the Children

Christmas for the Children

Dear Members,


We here at the Janesville Athletic Club believe that Christmas is a time to give and share the gifts we have been blessed with. We know how amazing you are at giving to those in our community who are in need. You show us this every time we have a coat drive, toy drive or an employee in need. This year we have been asked to partner with the Rock County Jail Chaplaincy to give each inmate the opportunity to have wrapped Christmas gifts (given by you) sent to their children on their behalf.


A Christmas tree will be set up in November, in the lobby of the club, across from the desk. The tree will have tags on it. Please take a tag and purchase a gift for the age group on the tag. Then bring the gift back to the club, give the gift to a desk employee and we will get those gifts to the Rock County Jail Chaplains.



We welcome unwrapped gifts, especially for infants to 12 years. 


Gift cards are best for 13+ years. (Target, Kohls, Walmart, Farm & Fleet and other local stores).


Monetary gifts are also welcome. Donations will go towards gift shopping, gift wrapping materials and postage for gifts that we cannot deliver locally. 


Monetary gifts must be sent to:

Rock County Jail Chaplaincy

706 Glen Street

Janesville, WI 53545 


With your help we will also be blessing each of the approximately 400 inmates with a gift of fruit and candy on their Christmas day meal tray.


Gifts need to be dropped off by Sunday, November 28th so we can wrap them on November 30th.


Thank you for whatever part you play to help bring joy to these families this Christmas season. We appreciate you!


Mark, Sherrie and the JAC Crew
