On Friday April 22nd, we attended “A Day with Dad” at KEVA Sports Center. They partnered with us for this event to help bring awareness to REACH-A-Child™. Attendees were encouraged to bring new and/or gently used books to donate for our REACH BAGs, we were also accepting cash donations there (KEVA matched what we brought in). We walked away with a few bags full of books and raised over $250 for REACH-A-Child! We were also very lucky to have a few first responders come and show their support of REACH and interact with the kids. Sergeant Banuelos from University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department, bring his K9 Maya to interact with the children as well as answer questions. We then had Deputy Sheriff Gagner & Deputy Bennett from Dane County Sheriff’s Department come and enjoy some of the activities as well as interact with the children. Lastly, we had Officer Corcoran from the Madison Police Department along with her K9 Slim to come and entertain the children. They really enjoyed throwing the ball for Slim and seeing him retrieve it bag to them. We had a great time at the event and are very thankful for the books and monetary donations that were given!
