Janesville church covers back-to-school supplies for students

Ninety-nine percent of the students at Janesville's Wilson Elementary School get a free or reduced-price lunch.

Now, they will also receive free school supplies and gym shoes thanks to donations from St. Paul's Lutheran Church and School.

Pastor Jason Schockman has covered almost a year's worth of goods for nearly every student there.

The church leader says his congregation has worked hard to ensure students in the city's highest poverty area are ready to learn.

The church distributed the goods at a party Sunday in a park two blocks from the school.
