A Big THANK YOU to all our generous donors. Whether you give on North Texas Giving Day or any other day of the year, your support is deeply appreciated.
REACH is now listed with Guidestar.
REACH is now a registered nonprofit on the AmazonSmile website. This means that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to REACH. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon we all know. Same products, same prices, same service.
Whenever you want to make an Amazon purchase, visit www.smile.amazon.com and on the right side of the home page you’ll see a box that gives you the option to select a charity. You are given the option to choose one of Amazon’s spotlight charities OR pick your own charitable organization by typing in Rehabilitation, Education and Advocacy for Citizens with Handicaps (REACH’s full legal name) in the lower search box and click on Search. Then shop away and REACH will benefit!
Our community partners have made it easier than ever to give with their program cards.
Tom Thumb and Kroger have collaborated with REACH to become a partner in their community donor programs. The purpose of these programs is to help non-profit organizations in securing additional funding. In order to participate, all you have to do is use REACH's numbers when making purchases at Tom Thumb, and Kroger grocery stores.
The total of your purchases will be credited to REACH's account and each company will send a donation to REACH on a quarterly basis.
If you want to participate, please contact any of the REACH office's to get a copy of the Tom Thumb, and/or Krogers program cards. Your family, friends & neighbors can participate, too!!

Supporters will simply fill out the Good Neighbor program section and the top part of a Reward Card Application, indicating REACH’s number and return it to the Courtesy Booth. That's it! REACH is now linked your Reward card. From that point on, the purchase price of groceries will automatically be recorded to REACH’s Good Neighbor account. Tom Thumb keeps a running total of our account and will periodically send us a donation check. the Good Neighbor webpage http://www.tomthumb.com/ShopStores/Good-Neighbor.page the form to download or print http://www.tomthumb.com/CMS/includes/docs/TomThumb-GoodNeighbor.PDF
