Mayor Wright Homes holds book fair for kids

PALAMA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dozens gathered at Mayor Wright Homes Sunday morning to begin a new chapter.

The public housing complex held its first free book fair.

The Kamehameha Schools boys track team helped put on the event.

Organizers say the fair was a way to give back to the community, especially the youth.

"I was a little surprised when the doors opened there was about 20 kids that ran through the front door grabbing books so its something pretty dear to me. I love to read, we are glad our team is here and it was like Christmas morning", said Kamehameha Schools Track and Field Coach Harvey McInerny.

Sunday's fair is the first of many events, aimed at reaching out to Mayor Wright residents.
