Phone store will give away school supplies

The Cellular Connection (TCC), the largest Verizon premium wireless retailer in the U.S., is hosting its second annual “School Rocks Backpack Giveaway” to benefit thousands of school children across the country.

Locally, parents are asked to take their children to the TCC store at 29498 Seven Mile in Livonia from noon-2 p.m. Aug. 2. Each backpack will be filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more. One backpack per child will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Between 75 and 300 backpacks will be donated. Leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
