  • It's a party that keeps giving. Looking for a new way to celebrate a special day without accumulating more things? Why not ask guests to contribute a monetary donation, backpacks, school supplies, or books to pass along to peers facing hardship.  Holiday parties are another great time to pay it forward for children in your community.

School on Wheels of Massachusetts last year equipped more than 6,000 students facing homelessness with fully-stocked and customized backpacks, books and supplies.  There has been an extraordinary increase in the need for academic support for the fall.  Due to Covid-19 and social distancing, our inventory has simultaneously been compromised as more than 120 summer supply drives and in-house volunteer groups were forced to cancel.  Whether schools commence online or in class, the need for academic materials is greater than ever.  Thank you for helping to ensure that every Massachusetts student is prepared for school this fall.  

Below are the items needed for our inventory.  To support students from the comfort of your home, please see the many ways you can help by clicking here.
