7-1-22 at&t grant: reach a child

The Fond du Lac Police Department received 31 first responder bags to help children deal with crisis situations as part of the REACH-A-Child™ program, thanks to a $7,500 grant from the  AT&T Foundation.   The program provides local sheriffs, police, EMTs and fire departments with First Responder REACH BAGs that contain a variety of children’s books that are given to children at the scene of  an accident, house fire or other emergency. The goal is to redirect the children’s attention from the crisis at hand, allowing them to experience an educational escape from their fears.  The Fond du Lac Police Department also received extra new children’s books to help replenish REACH BAGs and to support upcoming community events hosted by the Police Department.
