The annual Touch-a-Truck event is back! This past Saturday, the iconic bus was stationed on Leonard Street to raise funds that will be used to help purchase books for children. Tickets gave participants access to fun games, food, and art activities. The whole event was a success, with over 250 tickets sold and even more smilies on children's faces.
Funds raised from the Touch-a-Truck event will be used to offset operating costs and most importantly to purchase new reading material for school children. Most excited for the event was Broadway Stages President Gina Argento, who has supported Brooklyn Story Voyager's Touch-a-Truck in the past and sponsored this year's event. With Gina's donation and ticket sales, Brooklyn Story Voyager will be able to purchase hundreds of new books for students to read. Supplying hundreds of children with reading material is an amazing feat accomplished by members of the Brooklyn community together!
Broadway Stages would like to thank our fellow Brooklynites for coming to the Touch-a-Truck event and supporting New York students by donating to help purchase educational books.
