The REACH Foundation and Connecticut Law Enforcement strengthen their community outreach, while helping families who need a little extra holiday cheer this season.

The 2023 Grant Application process is now closed! 

With the hardships and uncertainty, we all are experiencing this year, we plan to still continue spreading joy and happiness to Connecticut children this holiday season with our Shop With A Cop program. This season again to ensure the safety of all participants, this year's Shop With A Cop will remain as a gift card program. 

Shop With A Cop 2023 will continue as a grant program for this year's holiday season. CONNECTICUT Police departments and social service agencies can apply for grants of $150.00 for CONNECTICUT families who they designate as in need. Applicants will be able to request for checks written directly to the department or the agency or Target or Walmart gift cards. The number of approved applications may be limited depending upon past participation and funds available. Connecticut Families have to work with agencies or police departments to be nominated!

We do ask that these grants are allocated to CT families who are in need this year. We know that families are greatly impacted more than ever and we want to ensure this Program still is helping families who need that extra holiday cheer. We know that you see every day families in need, and we are asking for your help again this year to help us reach those families.

Our mission is critical now more than ever now. We ask you all to join us, “If in one life, make a difference”. 

Since 2013, The REACH Foundation has provided this experience to over 2,200+ families throughout Connecticut.
