School on Wheels Indianapolis provides one-on-one tutoring, backpacks, school supplies and educational support to homeless children in Indiana. School on Wheels is Indianapolis' answer to increasing educational opportunities for school-aged homeless children in order to create economic opportunities necessary to break the cycle of homelessness.
We help complement the access to public education with tools for educational success. Since 2001, over 1,600 School on Wheels community volunteers have provided more than 30,000 hours of tutoring to 3,100 Indianapolis homeless children at eleven locations. There are School on Wheels programs in in Los Angeles and Massachusetts.
Listeners can go online to facebook.com/toyota to vote for School on Wheels (on Aug 9) to get a Toyota Prius to deliver school supplies to homeless children!! Toyota is giving away 100 cars in 100 days through their 100 Cars for Good Program.
Today we will talk with Nathan Hand about this great organization and how you can help them win a new car! Join us!
