Residents in Plymouth will benefit from a national backpack giveaway campaign this weekend. The Cellular Connection, the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer in the U.S., in a joint effort with its customers will be donating 100,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through its School Rocks Backpack Giveaway. Last year, the company donated 60,000 backpacks.
More than 350 participating TCC stores across the U.S. including the one in Plymouth are inviting local families to bring their children to the store between noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 2 to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more. One backpack per child present will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. The participating store in Plymouth is located at 1605 North Michigan Street. Each participating TCC store will donate between 75 and 300 backpacks. All leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
Plymouth residents have also joined the cause. Since the beginning of March, TCC customers have been given the option to round their purchases up to the nearest dollar with the difference going directly toward the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway.
More information about the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway initiative is available on YouTube. Supporters of the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway are encouraged to use hashtag #TCCRocks on Instagram and Twitter to help spread the word.
