In July 2010, Paul Gilbertson’s REACH a Child program generously donated 6000 books to the Books for Kids program. REACH a Child is based in Madison, Wisconsin and centers around providing children's books to officers and first responders in a red backpack for them to give to children that they see at the scene of an accident, fire, domestic disturbance or in other traumatic situations.

REACH a Child has donated over 175,000 Children's books to children in crisis situations with the help of these First Responders, Police, Sheriff and State Patrol officers!

We thank REACH a Child for extending their program to Milwaukee and helping us to get books into the hands of children throughout the central city. The books were distributed to children via the “giving library” and at several back to school events including the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum’s Back to School Resource Fair which provided free school supplies and educational materials to over 1,000 children in Milwaukee.
