Wireless Zone locations in Gloucester and Hayes will be distributing backpacks full of school supplies between 1-4 p.m. Sunday as part of the eighth annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway event.
Round Room LLC, a Verizon Authorized Wireless Retailer, announced this week that its TCC and Wireless Zone stores are donating a total of 140,000 backpacks this year, marking more than a million since the campaign launched in 2013.
One backpack per child will be given to families, but to limit the number of people at this year’s event, children are not required to be present to receive the backpack. Backpacks will be filled with various school supplies including pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders and glue, and will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
For more information, call the Gloucester store (located at 6822 Walton Lane) at 804-693-0303 or the Hayes location (2417 York Crossing Drive) at 804-642-1164.
