Cops 'n' Kids on the Move

Founded by Julia Burney-Witherspoon, a police officer from Racine, Wisconsin, Cops ‘n’ Kids is an international initiative with the goal of ensuring that every child has access—in his or her home—to books and the knowledge, inspiration and hope that such access can provide.
The Lehigh Valley initiative includes:

  • businesses and organizations
  • municipal leaders
  • the educational community
  • other caring individuals 
  • Quota International volunteers

All “making a difference” in the lives of our children. 

Through the cooperative effort the program has been responsible for distributing more than 600,000 book thus far

Beverly Bradley has served as Chairperson and President of Quota International of Bethlehem’s Cops ‘n’ Kids Children’s Literacy Program since it began in 2003.
