Leading online watch retailer DiscountWatchStore.com partnered with Kingsbridge Heights Community Center on Thursday, October 22 in an effort to educate children on how to tell time. The session, which followed a study revealing that over 70% of children at the community center were unable to read time on an analog clock, included a workshop for Bronx children to not only educate them on telling time, but also to donate 100 analog watches to kids at the community center.
