Kohl’s Cares® grants $10,000 to REACH-A-Child to help children in crisis in the Milwaukee-area
Madison, WI January 28, 2020—Kohl’s announced last week, that REACH-A-Child would be the recipient of a $10,000 grant to help comfort children in crisis situations. REACH was one of only 25 nonproft organizations awarded a grant for the Greater Milwaukee Area.
“Grants like the one awarded to us by Kohl’s helps us continue our valuable mission to provide our First Responders with the tools they need to connect and reach the most vulnerable citizens in our communities — our youth. We’re so thankful for this amazing gift,” Sarah Braun, Director of Development & Marketing.
Kohl’s grant to REACH-A-Child was made through Kohl’s Hometown Giving Program, which awards more than $500,000 in grants annually to nonprofits in Milwaukee. The donations are made possible through Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares®, which sells children’s books and toys and donates 100 percent of the net profit to support happier and healthier communities nationwide.
REACH-A-Child was founded in 2007 and provides REACH BAGs, durable backpacks, filled with children’s books and drawstring backpacks to First Responders in Wisconsin. We distributed over 25,000 books in more than 150 departments across the state in 2019 to help children in crisis, as well as build positive relationships with youth in their communities.
