How You Can Help
SAIL4S collects sporting, coats, jackets, slightly worn clothing and shoes for distribution to our sister schools. Currently we are supporting a "Free Store" at the Boston English School where students in need can choose from a selection of donated clothing. In this store students can feel comfortable to sort through and find what they need for themselves and their siblings. Through our Scituate High School Charter we also donate clothing to the Rafael Hernandez (K-8) School and the Boston Technical and Vocational High School.
SAIL4S was founded by High School Student Olivia Clark and is run by students.
We are an organization that believes that all students should have every opportunity to thrive in their learning environment in school and out. Our goal is to support students in various ways to help them succeed down a path of higher education. In 2016/2017 we will help over 1,000 students in the inner city Boston schools.
Our primary focus is to award college scholarships to inner city Boston students and to ensure that they are able to attend and thrive in school by being properly clothed for all seasons through our clothing drives. We also provide clothing to elementary schools and hold seasonal events including Santa's Elf Free Gift Shop and anonymous holiday gifting.
We practice "One Touch" giving with every donation reaching students in need! We accept clothing and financial donations year round and are a registered 501c charity.
We are asking for monetary donations from individuals and businesses to contribute to our scholarship program. SAIL4S awards scholarships to Boston English High School Students each year. Our goal is to increase our scholarship giving from 2016 and give out at least 15 $500.00 scholarships in 2017. The foundation strives to provide as many students as possible with some of the funds needed to go to a two or four year college.
