Your gift matters. When you donate to Kate's Kart, a hospitalized child receives comfort and joy in an oftentimes scary and unfamiliar environment. The simple, yet powerful gift of a new book transforms hospitals stays, and creates lifelong readers, connected families, and united communities. Will you make a difference today?
We understand that many people love to go shopping and like to get their children involved in purchasing books. We ask that you keep these few things in mind when donating books:
Thank you for helping us keep our karts filled with the books children love that will provide a positive, entertaining distraction during their stay, as well as keeping the germs associated with used books away.
Donations of NEW BRAND BOOKS can be made at any of the following locations:
Kate’s Kart, Inc.
10376 Leo Road, Suite A
Fort Wayne, IN 46825
Mon-Fri: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Since Kate’s Kart is primarily run by volunteers, we appreciate your willingness to get any NEW BOOK donations to our Fort Wayne office, located on the northeast side of town, just minutes from I-69 and Parkview Regional Medical Center. Please DO NOT take any donation directly to the hospitals. You may also contact us to make arrangements if you have a large donation of NEW books.
For book donations outside of the Fort Wayne area, please contact us to make arrangements.
Kate’s Kart acknowledges the generosity of all donors. These gifts fuel our determination to provide comfort and educate hospitalized children in Northeast Indiana. Thank you!
