Local TCC wireless stores giving away backpacks July 23

Round Room LLC, the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Wireless Retailer, announced today that its TCC and Wireless Zone stores are donating 172,000 backpacks full of school supplies to ensure children across the U.S. are well prepared for the start of the school year.

Three Prescott-area TCC stores will take part in the giveaway from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 23. They’re located at 150 E. Sheldon St., Suite D1113; 3250 Gateway Blvd., No. 330; and 254 Lee Blvd., No. 101.

Families can bring their children to any of the stores 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.

Since 2013, TCC has donated more than 505,000 backpacks filled with supplies through its annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway, and Wireless Zone is now a part of the nationwide initiative.

“This is our fifth TCC School Rocks Backpack Giveaway, and we are ecstatic to bring Wireless Zone on board to assist in supporting the education of young children in our communities,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, parent company of TCC and Wireless Zone. “We are proud to help our local families prepare for the upcoming school year by taking some of the financial burden off their shoulders.”

Supporters of the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway are encouraged to use hashtags #BetterTogether and #TCCRocks on Instagram and Twitter to help spread the word.
