With its learning center in the heart of Skid Row, School on Wheels, Inc. is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that specifically provides academic support to K-12 homeless youth and is the only organization in Southern California that targets this vulnerable demographic. ECMC Foundation was introduced to School on Wheels through Angela Sanchez (program analyst) and has selected them as this year’s holiday donation recipient.
Identifying the highest supply needs for students struggling with homelessness, ECMC Foundation staff personally delivered flash drives, scientific calculators, note cards and other study tools.
"Our students can really use these materials," said one School on Wheels representative. "Thank you so much!" For more information about School on Wheels, visit its website at http://www.schoolonwheels.org/ and view its public service announcement at http://youtube.com/qVQggDnAy3w.
