Residents on Kent Island are about to benefit from a national backpack giveaway campaign. The Cellular Connection, formerly Pagetronics Wireless, the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer in the U.S., in a joint effort with its customers, announces today that it will be donating 60,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through its School Rocks Backpack Giveaway initiative.

More than 400 participating TCC stores across the U.S. are inviting local families to bring their children to the store between noon and 2 p.m. on Aug. 3 to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more. Backpacks will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Participating store(s) on Kent Island are located at 12 Kent Towne Market, Chester, MD 21619 – 410-604-1000– In the old Safeway Shopping Center. Each participating TCC store will donate between 50 and 150 backpacks. Any leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
