Three Easy Ways to Get Ready For Back To School

The end of summer and beginning of the new school year is a time of excitement and anticipation for both students and parents alike. School is one of the few stable, secure places in the lives of homeless children, a place where they can acquire the skills needed to escape poverty. And you, our wonderful friends and supporters, help students understand how critical being in school and learning are.
Here are three ways you can help!


1. Apply to become a Volunteer Tutor

Our team has been filling backpacks and delivering school supplies to all our students. With the new school year starting, we need tutors more than ever to help our students. That’s where you come in! Sign up to become a volunteer or refer a friend. Give a child a chance to start the school year off right.

Apply Now!

 

2. Shop for School Supplies

Every homeless child that we meet receives a backpack filled with school supplies. In 2016 we distributed over 7,500 backpacks, along with school supplies, uniforms and bus tokens.

Next time you are shopping for school supplies for your family, why not pick up some extra and send them to School on Wheels?

Please note – We only accept and distribute new backpacks and school supplies.

You can view our student wish list here.

 

 

3.  Donate

The National Education Association has research to show that the average family will spend about $200 per elementary student this year, and that cost rises to $330 and $375 for middle and high school students, respectively. With your support, we can continue to provide supplies and educational resources to our students year round.
