A national backpack giveaway will bring hundreds of new school supplies to Decatur students before the school year begins.
Round Room LLC, the nation’s largest Verizon-authorized wireless retailer, announced that its TCC and Wireless Zone stores are donating 187,000 backpacks full of school supplies to students across the country, an annual giveaway that the company has done since 2013. Over the previous years, TCC has donated 752,000 backpacks filled with supplies to kids.
Between 1 – 4 p.m. on July 22, local families can bring their children to Decatur’s TCC store, located at at 335 West Ponce de Leon Ave. Ste D., to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more.
The store will donate up to 220 backpacks, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The store will give one backpack per child present.
“We are thrilled to support the education of our youth in our communities,” Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, said. “By providing families across the country with essential school supplies, we’re easing the back-to-school shopping burden and helping set children up for success.”
