Help your schools with Books to Kids!
Books to Kids is a non profit in Denver who believes
“There is no child who dislikes reading, only a child who hasn’t yet found the right book.”
Books to Kids was formed to promote and enrich children’s literacy.
In partnership with The Conflict Center in northwest Denver, Books to Kids gifted over 150 new books to 3rd graders in several Title 1 schools in the Denver metro area during the autumn 2019 semester.
Our hope is to expand this program in future to include additional
elementary school grades and families in need.
