The mission of Kate's Books is to gather gently used or even new books and distribute them to under-privileged children through the Dallas Police Department's Santa Cops Program.
WE REACHED AND FAR SURPASSED OUR GOAL!!!
In 2016, Kate's Books collected 5000 books and distributed them to 1500 kids.
Santa Cops typically delivers to approximately 500 families each year. Each family typically has several children. Our inaugural goal will be to collect 1,500 books. That means 3 books would go to each family. It would be amazing for each child to get more books, so the sky is the limit!
Kate's Books was founded in April 2016, by an 8 year old girl with a big vision! Kate has been active in Santa Cops since she was an infant. She noticed we gave away plenty of toys, but no books. Kate had the idea to include books in Santa Cops' deliveries. Since many underprivileged kids may not have access to libraries in the same manner we do, this is a great way to get books into the hands that need them most!
