Buttonwood Books and Toys of Cohasset gave patrons the opportunity to purchase a book at a discounted price for students facing homelessness.

Last year we distributed 2,900 new and customized backpacks to
elementary, high school and college students experiencing homelessness.

We expect the demand to increase at the start of the 2018/19 academic school year.
