On October 18th, REACH-A-Child Executive Director Curt Fuszard delivered 13 REACH bags to Wisconsin Dells First Responders. Wisconsin Dells Police received six REACH bags and the Kilbourn Fire Department (in Wisconsin Dells) received seven REACH bags. The 13 bags will allow Wisconsin Dells first responders to comfort and distract 260 children in crisis over the next year. This department is sponsored by SSM Health.
In addition, Wisconsin Dells received 160 extra books to split among the two departments. These books help first responders break down barriers and build trust within the community and the children they encounter.
