Giving is easy and a little goes a long way. Donate to Kate's Kart today and brighten a child's day! We have many different ways to make a donation. See your donation options below and thank you for supporting Kate's Kart and hospitalized children throughout Northeast Indiana. Monetary donations are the most preferred because it allows us to purchase the specific types of books we need the most.
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.
Call or email for other arrangements
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.
When choosing books for Kate’s Kart, please remember that it is our goal that these books bring an enjoyable distraction to the children in the hospital. We encourage you to select “fun” books with popular characters that the children love and adore. These characters bring an amazing sense of security and comfort to the children during a very frightening time. We also ask that these books be BRAND NEW and recently purchased from the store. It is our goal to provide a meaningful gift to a child, as well as keep germs associated with used books as far away from the hospital as possible. We would prefer 1 high quality book over 10 smaller books from dollar stores. Thank you!
