McKenna Book Fairies Help Those in Need

The J. P. McKenna Junior Chiefs Helping Hands club, facilitated by Ms. Rohan and Mrs. Scheffler, organized a school wide Book Fairies book drive this month. The Book Fairies is a nonprofit organization that collects reading material for people in need throughout metropolitan New York. The McKenna students and staff generously donated new and “gently used” books in the following categories: Baby/Preschool, Elementary, Middle/High School, and Adult. McKenna was able to fill thirty-two total boxes!   Thank you to all who contributed!
