Backpacks and School Supplies

School on Wheels of Massachusetts (SOWMA) provides students with the tools they need for success in the classroom. Each child is given a brand new backpack filled with supplies and books, packed by our community volunteers. Additional supplies are available throughout the year for school projects and classroom activities.
