Verizon store giving away backpacks

ROCK FALLS – Children in need of school supplies are invited to pick up a backpack filled with the basics at The Cellular Connection on Aug. 3.

The Verizon retailer at 107 First Ave. (next to Anytime Fitness) will hand out backpacks filled with notebooks, pens, pencils and more from noon to 2 p.m. The store has 150 backpacks to give away.

Families need not be Verizon customers or make a purchase at the store, and children do not have to meet any guidelines to receive backpacks.

The giveaway is part of a nationwide effort on the part of The Cellular Connection. The company will hand out 60,000 backpacks at its more than 400 locations across the country. Any leftover backpacks will be given to local schools.

Call the local The Cellular Connection store at 815-625-2096 for more information.
