Backpacks and School Supplies

School on Wheels of Massachusetts (SOWMA) provides students with the tools they need for success in the classroom. Each child is given a brand new backpack filled with new supplies and books, collected and packed by our community volunteers. Additional supplies are available throughout the year for school projects and classroom activities.  In the 2016-2017 academic school year, we distributed 2,400 full stocked backpacks; 800 more than we anticipated and we delivered thanks to YOU!
