How You Can Help

Our Dream...
To put books into the hands of Racine's children has come true. Millions of books have been distributed, but Cops 'N Kids is just the beginning of a greater vision. Julia Witherspoon has traveled extensively and helped to open over 75 Cops 'N Kids programs throughout the U.S. as well as Australia, South Africa, Venezuela and the Philippines.

Working together Cops 'N Kids, as well as other community members, can reclaim the future; a future full of reading, writing, success in school, confidence, self-respect, creativity, potential and the ability to make their own dreams come true.
