Kate's Kart is a not-for-profit organization that supplies brand new, free books to hospitalized children to keep for their enjoyment. Our goal is to promote literacy and encourage children, and their families, to read on an ongoing basis. We currently have over 100 volunteers collecting, counting, sorting, labeling, stocking and distributing more than 2,000 books per month to 16 area hospitals. Read more about us here.
Through the gifting of new books, Kate's Kart strives to provide a comforting diversion to hospitalized children and their families, and to foster a love of books, and ultimately literacy, by encouraging children to read and parents to read to their children.
We are 100% funded by donations and grants from the community. To support Kate’s Kart with a tax-deductible donation, please click here:
