2020 Fruit Basket Sales
        Are you looking for that perfect gift? 
The Janesville Morning Rotary Club has considered multiple options to hold our annual fruit basket fundraiser in a safe and successful manner.  Each of the fruit baskets (over 1,500) are carefully packed by our members, which presented challenges for us to safely manage risk.  In addition, we recognize our role as community leaders and want to lead by example and encourage community members to stay home and stay safe.  Sadly, we have decided to cancel our fruit basket sales for this year.
Each year, we raise over $20,000 from fruit basket sales that we reinvest in non-profit organizations here in Rock County.  The fruit basket sales will return during the 2021 holiday season and we would love your continued support.  For those who have purchased fruit baskets already – thank you!  You have two options:
  • Donate the amount you paid to our Janesville Morning Rotary Club to be utilized in our non-profit grant program in Spring 2021. 
  • Request a refund of your payment. If you would like to request a refund (or uncashed check to be returned), please contact the member who sold you the fruit baskets and we will process this for you as soon as we can.
In true Morning Rotary spirit, we are encouraging our members and the community to giveback safely during this holiday season.  Need some ideas?  We can help!
  • “Buy” a fruit basket.  Since we won’t make/deliver fruit baskets this year, 100% of your contribution will go towards our grant program to help local non-profits.
  • Write letters and send holiday cards to aging adults. 
  • Donate blood.  The American Red Cross has a dire need for blood donations, and you can find a drive near you by visiting redcrossblood.org.
  • Purchase items from a non-profit’s online wish list.  Many have a list of items that they need.  You can order and have them shipped right to their door.
  • Clean your house.  Donate items to local non-profit re-sale stores.
  • Deliver food to essential workers.  Contact hospitals/service providers to find out how to help.
  • Contact your favorite local non-profit.  Many of them have identified ways for people to volunteer safely in-person, or virtually. 
  • Send love and share compassion.  We could all use a little more in these challenging times!
Share your efforts on our Janesville Morning Rotary Facebook page – we’d love to see the impact you are making!  We appreciate your support and look forward to a time when we can reconnect with our family, friends, and community members.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Be well,
Your Janesville Morning Rotary Friends
How about an inexpensive, no-hassle holiday gift for your friends, family, teachers, coaches, or mail carrier?
In lieu of holiday festivities, are you looking for a gift for employees or clients? 
You can order fresh fruit baskets to be delivered to a home or office!
They are picked and packed by local Rotarians using all of the most important safety precautions, then delivered anywhere in Rock County.
Each fruit basket contains: 5 grapefruit, 5 oranges, 6 apples, and 4 pears.
Another nice way to give is to donate a basket to a local non-profit!
To those of you who ordered fruit baskets previously, thanks for your support.
