For a number of years, the Hicksville High School National Honor Society has sponsored a book collection to support the organization, The Book Fairies.
This year, the annual drive took place from Jan. 11-15. Students, staff and community members donated 84 boxes of reading materials for all ages.
The Book Fairies, based in Freeport, then distributes the books to schools, organizations and communities across Long Island who are in need of literature. The goal of the organization is to foster a love for literacy and academic success.
