Books For Kids

Nearly 1,000 people donated to WDET's Books for Kids drive in April 2012. Operation: Kid Equip worked closely with WDET to turn each $5 donation into 20 children's books that are being distributed over the course of this summer. Over 22,000 books will be distributed to kids in need. Books have already been distributed in Eastpointe and as part of Yusef Shakur’s Zone 8 Backpack event in Detroit. Books will also be given to the Urban Network Cafe to establish a free take-away library for children in Detroit. Five additional local agencies will receive donations of 1,000+ books each this August. Check our event calendar for upcoming book distributions.
