Kats Kitchen has donated children's books for the Library and Teacher's room @ Bens Branch Elementary, NCISD in Porter, TX.  It all started when Calla Gregg, a caring student teacher reached out to Newport residents for help with any children's books anyone could spare, for her students. We couldn't say no. So we asked her for a list of books she approved and needed. We provided them with a bunch of them. There are more to come. We intend to fulfill the list. Below are the pictures of the acceptance. Kudos to Calla Gregg as well as Stephani Sapp, the Librarian for working together, allowing Kats Kitchen to provide a stairway to imagination, creativity, happiness for the kids at Bens Branch  elementary!

Update Oct 09, 2019:This is Sebastiao Jose and family, who live in Mozambique, outside Maputo. They all work together making baskets, chairs, and many other items clients request. Katskitchen has funded their entire machinery, funds to operate for an entire year, materials needed to enable them to produce in large quantities to sell, as well as rent a store. They have now added several members of their family and are working as one. We love to see them flourish. Empowering young entrepreneurs is a big part of our mission!
