Brownsville school receives major changes to its library due to student families voicing concerns
More than 100 repairs have been made in several district 23 schools. The total repairs by the end of this year will total to 168. It's part of $10 million from the city to make the changes.
At P.S. 137 in Brownsville, the library received new flooring. Other fixes throughout the district include staircases, outdoor space and more. Students and families rallied together with the help of the East Brooklyn Congregations to get the changes made.
"Some people may think they're little things but when you add all of them up you show our young people that we care about them. We want to have an environment where our young people can thrive," said Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church Brooklyn Pastor Shaun J. Lee.
The Campus Revival Project will now expand to three other districts, including District 7 in the South Bronx.
