A Message from Kathy Katz
for our 20th anniversary celebration I have been looking through our
stacks and stacks of old photos and letters and endless computer files,
reflecting on my many years with Children’s Book Project. What I realized is
that It’s the people I’ve met that inspire me ‑— the endless stream of amazing
people who work to improve our community. Their concern for Bay Area children
and families. Their dedication to the never-ending struggle to keep the social
service/nonprofit world alive. Teachers’ willingness to spend additional hours
at CBP selecting books to improve their classroom and for their students to
take home. Doctors bringing books to free clinics for their patients.
Volunteers picking up books for homeless shelters and tutoring programs. And
then there are all the wonderful people who collect the books that we can then
distribute throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Over 100,000 books donated to us
every year. Definitely something to celebrate! Kathy CBP
