WOW – WE CARE CHARITY recently partnered with an organization called REACH-A-Child. Their mission is to provide first responders with REACH Bags filled with books and drawstring backpacks to help comfort children during crisis situations.
WOW – WE CARE CHARITY’s goal is to provide funding for REACH Bags to Fire and Police vehicles in the cities where WOW Logistics operates. This process started with Chippewa Falls, WI.
On January 24, 2020, Todd Weiss, Manager of WOW Logistics’ Chippewa Falls Distribution Center, and his team packed and delivered 12 REACH Bags to the local Fire and Police Departments.
Weiss explained, “Both the Police Chief and Fire Chief were very, very appreciative of these materials. Each of them had stories to tell about how the books and the REACH Bags are a great tool they can use with some of the young kids they deal with. They each told me many stories about some very sad situations they deal with, and how the books, bags, and backpacks are a great distraction for the young kids involved. Chippewa Falls is very honored to help out with this project!”
