Ok, “back to school” isn’t really a season, but I’d imagine you’d rather hear me say
that as opposed to “fall”. The reality of summer ending is a bit much for some.
Anyway, let me get to the real reason I’m bothering everyone today. I actually
have an important question to ask that impacts the children of the south shore.
There are around 24,000 public school students impacted by homelessness. Sadly,
the average age of a homeless person in Massachusetts is 8. Just getting basic
school supplies, necessary for success, is a struggle.
Action Medicine, DPC is working with “School on Wheels”, a non-profit
organization located in East Bridgewater. Their team focuses on helping students
get the supplies and help (by tutoring and mentoring) that they need for
successful academic careers.
We are ever so kindly asking our patients, and general community, to please
donate backpacks, notebooks, pencils, crayons, erasers, folders, etc. to help
children in need succeed with their education. We are accepting drop off
donations at our 2 nd floor lobby area of our office. You may also go directly to the
website sowma.org and click on the “donate supplies “option.
We are always impressed by the generosity of our patients and thank you in
advance for your kindness. As always, stay safe and be good to one another.
The Action Medicine team
