Backpacks & School Supplies

Many SOWMA students share one bedroom with their siblings & family members at a family shelter.

A backpack serves as their personal space and “locker.” Our backpacks include all the tools a student needs to succeed in the classroom. Our community of volunteers help ensure students have what they need to succeed.

We would love to have you be part of our mission!
