TCC and Wireless Zone are teaming up to donate 140,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through TCC’s seventh annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway.
Between 1 and 4 p.m. July 21, more than 850 participating TCC and Wireless Zone stores across the country are inviting local families to bring their children to a store to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more.
The participating TCC store in Seymour is at 1327 E. Tipton St. Each participating TCC store will donate 200 backpacks on a first-come, first-served basis. Any leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
Since 2013, TCC has donated more than 950,000 backpacks filled with supplies to ensure children are well-prepared for the start of the school year, according to a news release from the authorized Verizon retailer.
