School on Wheels is a non-profit organization that works to provide all children with an equal opportunity to receive an education. Through school supply collections, and tutoring they are able to branch out to many children in the surrounding communities. School supply donations that they receive go towards the creation of backpacks to donate to children in the area. This organization runs off funds and school supply donations.
