Janesville Police Department Receives Early Holiday Donation

Maurer’s Market Gives Back Because It Feels Right


Janesville, WI –The Janesville Police department received an early holiday gift in the form of a $2,500 check from Maurer’s Market owner, Jeff Maurer.  The donation was accepted by Chief David Moore at their most recent city council meeting. 

When asked ‘why’ the donation to the police department, Jeff explained, “At a previous meeting, I asked the council how could we help our community?  While there were several good suggestions, the one that just felt right to me was the request by the Police Chief to help furnish their squad cars with some necessary equipment that would assist in keeping the community and officers safe.”

The Janesville Police Department's mission is to enhance the quality of life in Janesville by working cooperatively with the community and providing for a safe environment.  Similarly, Maurer’s Market is a firm believer that family-owned businesses are also an essential part of strong communities.  The family-owned Maurer’s Market focus is on smaller, full-service grocery stores that meet the unique needs of their community of shoppers, with fresh, nutritious and high-quality groceries so that patrons can feel good about eating and feeding their family.

“When it comes right down to it, we believe in giving back and we’re just doing our part to be a really good grocery store for the good people of Janesville.  Some people might find that old fashioned, but we just call it ‘doing the right thing’.”
