Round Room LLC, the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Wireless Retailer, announces recently that its TCC and Wireless Zone stores are donating 140,000 backpacks full of school supplies during its eighth annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway, marking more than 1 million total backpacks donated since the campaign launched in 2013. The Backpack Giveaway event ensures children across the U.S. are well prepared for the start of the new school year. TCC will also award five students each $10,000 college scholarships.
More than 800 participating TCC and Wireless Zone stores across the U.S., including the Shippensburg store on South Conestoga Drive near Walmart, are inviting families to visit select locations between 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday, July 26, to pick up a backpack filled with various school supplies including pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders and glue. One backpack per child will be given away to families, but to limit the number of people at the event, children are not required to be present to receive the backpack. Backpacks will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
