So…why backpacks?

On average, families spend about $789 on school supplies each year, and 1 in 5 school-aged children lives in poverty.

To date, Verizon has given away 1.3 million backpacks! This year, they’ll be adding to that total by giving away 130,000 backpacks.

Please remember that the intent of this promotion is to help families in need. If you know of anyone who would benefit from this information, feel free to pass it on!
