Buddy Bags Program
The "Buddy Bags" program was created in an effort to comfort children involved in traumatic situations. Equipped with pre-assembled bags, First Responders will give one to a child who has been involved in or witness to a stressful event such as an automobile accident, domestic disturbance, or homeless situation. Inside each "Buddy Bag" backpack, a child will find an age-appropriate book to read, coloring book and crayons, and a small, cuddly stuffed animal. Not only will the "Buddy Bag" ease the mind of an upset child at the scene, it is our hope that it will comfort the child for the days following an incident.
Since this is an ongoing program, donations are continuously needed to replenish Buddy Bags throughout the Fox Cities. Please consider donating any of the following:
