Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 28, 2022
Verizon-Cellular Plus in Cody and Powell, WY, are giving away free backpacks filled with school supplies on Saturday, July 30, from 10 am to noon.
The Cody and Powell locations are participating in a company-wide giveaway facilitated by Cellular Plus. The company hopes the giveaway will benefit kids and relieve some stress for their adults.
“We are honored to give back to our local community by helping students kick off the school year with a brand-new backpack,” stated President Adam Kimmet. “We want to ease some of the stress that can be placed on families while trying to get the school supplies they need. It’s really rewarding to see the kids parade out of the store, excited to show off their new backpack and ready to start the school year prepared and confident.”
The Verizon-Cellular Plus Backpack to School program incorporates employees, customers, and vendor partners. An internal employee donation program was organized while stores also accept donations from their guests to help as many families as possible.
Donations stay local. Each backpack donated at a specific location will be distributed to children in that area.
No purchase is necessary to receive a free backpack, but a child must be present with an adult to claim one.
There are a limited number of backpacks available. The Cody and Powell stores will distribute while supplies last.
