Free books will be distributed to children by local volunteers through “Celebrate Reading” events. These events are to be large community celebrations with much excitement, food, police and fire department vehicles officers, music, entertainment, and of course, free books for children and parents to select. Through these events we expect to build stronger literacy awareness and put books in the hands of needy children.
Look for the first of these events in 2015!!!
Distribution to Other Organizations
Cops ‘N Kids Chandler partners with private, governmental and 501c3 agencies located in Chandler; namely, Boys & Girls Club, Chandler Christian Community Center, Chandler CARE Center and ICAN. We will be using their facilities for our Reading Rooms and to carry out other literacy events. The children we are especially targeting live in the neighborhoods of these agencies.
