NACCTEP Embraces Service Learning in Boston

Donate Your College Mascot and a Reading or Coloring Book for the Local Children’s Hospital!

In an effort to leave a lasting impression on the communities where the national conference is held each year, NACCTEP has chosen Boston as the first site for its annual mascot and book drive. All donations will be presented by the host college Massasoit Community College, to School on Wheels Massachusetts. Give the gift of reading by donating new books at any reading level or a coloring book to spur on creativity. Pair the book with a stuffed animal or college mascot and give a smile to a child. By donating, you will have a positive effect on literacy and education in the Boston area. Donations may be dropped off at the registration desk.

School on Wheels of Massachusetts mission is to educate children impacted by homelessness by providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring so children may reach their full potential. They provide 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 community volunteers. Additional supplies are available throughout the year for school projects and classroom activities.

School on Wheels has an Amazon Wish List on their “Get Involved” page, which includes needed supplies and books. It is a way of making a donation without having to carry your gift to the NACCTEP national conference.
