On Thursday, September 21, REACH-A-Child Board Member Eric Ristau delivered 20 REACH bags to the Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department. REACH bags are backpacks kept in first responder vehicles. Each REACH bag contains children’s books and drawstring backpacks to be given to children who first responders encounter during crisis situations.
Deputy Erica Koxlien and Chief Deputy Harlan Reinders were on hand to accept the delivery.
These 20 REACH bags will help comfort 400 children in crisis.
