About Cops 'n' Kids
The Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program is a national initiative founded by Julia Burney Witherspoon, a police officer from Racine, Wisconsin. In 2003, the program was formally adopted by Quota International of Bethlehem, establishing the Quota International of Bethlehem Charitable Trust Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program.
Cops 'n' Kids
- ensures that every child has access — in his or her home
— to books and the knowledge, inspiration and hope that
such access can provide.
- encourages positive relationships between children and police.
- inspires creative learning for children and families by providing meaningful literacy-based experiences.
Cops ‘n’ Kids is a non-profit organization funded through the dedication of the Board, staff, volunteers, and by the generous support of the community.
The Quota International of Bethlehem Charitable Trust
Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program has as its mission “Connecting Kids and Community through Literacy.”
