Malverne Union Free School District’s Davison Avenue Intermediate School’s Special Forces recently completed a book drive to benefit The Book Fairies organization. Students collected a variety of children’s books that included “Snow Friends,” “Tangled,” “Nighty-Night,” and many more.
Based in Freeport, The Book Fairies is a nonprofit organization that accepts donations of new and gently used books, and connects them with schools throughout the metropolitan New York area that do not have the funds to foster the love of reading for their students. Thanks to donations from the entire school community, 24 boxes — which had more than 1,000 books — were donated to the organization.
