Here are some photos from my brief hiking trip at Mt. Sobaeksan. This place has Buddhist roots, as well. The day I went, it was a little foggy, and you can see it rolling over the mountains--really cool to see! On the way there, I saw the truly rural part of Korea, and it is so interesting to see the polarity between the modern cities and rural areas. It is a good reminder that Korea has only been truly rapidly modernizing for 50 years or so. 

Until next time!

Best regards,

Game Drive

We will continue to accept donations for our annual game drive through Friday, February 12! 
During February school vacation week, we will be holding game nights for the families living at the hotels we serve in Brockton and Weymouth. Families are invited to play games with volunteers and bring a new game back to their room to continue the fun. Donated games can be dropped off at our office, 100 Laurel Street, Suite 121, East Bridgewater. Click here for a flyer with more details. If you are interested in volunteering for a February game night, contact Matt Fortino.

We have already received donations of over 250 games--and expect many more--for the children living in the shelters where we tutor. We are looking forward to seeing their happy faces when we deliver the new games from our generous donors during school vacation week!


Our fall tutoring session is about to end and we are looking for tutors for our next tutoring session, which runs from January 11 to May 19, 2016. We hope you will consider becoming a volunteer tutor. Our tutors are the heartbeat of School on Wheels!
Volunteers must go through our 3-hour training and commit to tutor once a week. Click here for more information about becoming a tutor. Click here if you would like to register for a tutor training session. If you have any questions about tutoring, please contact Stephanie St. Louis, 508-587-9091.

Michael Christian, the CEO for Risk Strategies, dropped off 50 Thanksgiving baskets at Father Bills and MainSpring in Brockton this week to support the families we serve living in family shelters. The contents of the holiday baskets were assembled by over 60 employees at their Boston headquarters.  The items in the baskets including $25 gift cards were donated by RSC employees with support from the RSC Charitable Foundation. Thank you Risk Strategies for helping families impacted by homelessness feel supported and cared about this holiday season. Your company's support makes a true difference in their lives!


School on Wheels was featured on the New England Cable News Network in a spotlight called, "Making the Grade." 


On Monday, November 9th, six Bridgewater State University students, members of the Bridgewater Scholars Program, had dinner with BSU President Fred Clark to discuss their current progress and future plans. One student, Zachary Wright, who is studying abroad in South Korea, Skyped in to be a part of the conversation. These six SOWMA students, shared their struggles with homelessness and how BSU is helping them move beyond their circumstances through a higher education. The Bridgewater Scholars program provides two full scholarships per year for students who have experienced homelessness, yet achieved academic success.
