Central Supports Reading for All

The YOLO/SADD Club at Central High School held a book drive between Oct. 21-Nov.4 to support the Book Fairies organization, a group that collects reading materials for people in need throughout the metropolitan New York area. The books are distributed to high-poverty school districts and community outreach programs across Long Island and New York. The YOLO /SADD club successfully collected close to 300 books for readers of all ages; children, teenagers, and adults. The Book Fairies graciously accepted this donation and wrote a thank you letter to the kind participants at Central. "We are fortunate to have your support,” their note stated. “We are changing people's stories...one book at a time!” The students and their club advisor, teacher Reyna Batista, look forward to another successful book drive in the Spring.
