School on Wheels of Massachusetts is grateful for the many foundations and grantors who support the academic, social and emotional growth of Massachusetts students impacted by homelessness.  These gifts sustain our mission to keep students on track and in school during times of uncertainty and disruption.  Funds support customized, grade-level backpacks and school supplies, one-on-one tutoring and mentoring and college assistance to some of the 24,000+ students enrolled in Massachusetts public schools who have no place to call home.  We thank the following contributors for their confidence in our mission and in our students.
