Book Donation at P.S. 124's Community Fair

Friends of Yung Wing Literacy Initiative

As part of our Literacy Initiative, Friends of Yung Wing, Inc. donated a book to every P.S. 124 student who registered and attended the school fair on June 3, 2017. We very proudly distributed over 120 books during the fair.  The goal of the book distribution was to promote literacy and independent reading.

Reading exposes young minds to new things, helps them improve understanding, helps build communication skills, boosts imagination and creativity, and creates lifelong readers.
