Yung Wing Elementary PS 124 in New York City’s Chinatown uses arts collaborative programs to support and enrich the reading, writing and oral language skills for the large student population of English Language Learners.  Through the presentations offered by the students to showcase their talents and efforts, parents and the wider local community are able to see the children communicating and being more expressive through the arts as well as to increase their appreciation of visual, dance and theatre arts that benefit the children’s academic progress.

On Friday, August 7th, bring your loose coins to the TD Bank located at 155 Canal Street to support the Arts Programs at PS 124.  On top of your donation, up to $2000 of the coins counted at the Penny Arcade that day will be matched by TD Bank to continue arts education for the children at this school.  For more information, click here.
