“Helping First Responders Comfort Children-In-Crisis”

Vision Statement

“The first response is a book to comfort a child-in-crisis” Is REACH-A-Child’s vision. Whether the children are in an automobile accident, victims of domestic disturbance or temporarily homeless, REACH-A-Child wants to help First Responders engage these children in a positive way through the power of a book.

“Due to the nature of our work, Wisconsin State Troopers are regularly tasked with assisting victims through extremely difficult situations. Often times, those victims include children. The REACH-A-Child initiative provides a valuable tool to help children during times of crisis. Providing a book and a backpack to a child in crisis diverts their attention from the tragic situation and allows the Trooper to comfort them. The mission of the Wisconsin State Patrol is to promote highway safety and enhance the quality of life for all Wisconsin citizens and visitors by providing and supporting professional, competent and compassionate law enforcement services. The REACH-A-Child organization provides a beneficial tool that allows us to accomplish our mission.”

– Captain Charles Teasdale (Wisconsin State Patrol – Southwest Region)

Walgreens Distribution Center-Windsor holds golf outing for REACH


On Saturday May 14th, our Marketing Director Eric and our Program Coordinator Patricia attended a golf outing put on by Walgreens Distribution Center-Windsor. This was one of many fundraisers that Walgreens Distribution Center-Windsor is putting on for REACH-A-Child to help raise funds. Walgreens Distribution Center selected REACH-A-Child as their charity for the year to raise money for. On May 14th, 72 golfers joined to support REACH at the Shepards Meadow Golf Course in Poynette, WI. It was a surprisingly chilly day but everyone had a great time regardless. REACH-A-Child was there selling raffle tickets for baskets as well as 50/50. We brought in a total of  $1,154 just from raffle tickets and general donations for the event. All of the funds will be matched by Walgreens Coorporate at the end of July. We would like to give a special thanks to Tammy for organizing the event and for all those who came out and participated. You can view all the pictures from the event HERE!

Congratulations to Jeff who won $127 from our 50/50 raffle!
