Wireless World/Verizon 1st Annual Backpack to School – Lexington
Aug 11 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Wireless World, a Verizon Authorized Retailer, will be giving out free backpacks filled with school supplies on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 10am to noon.

This is the 1st year of our annual ‘Backpack to School’ program. One of our main core values is to serve the community and we have several initiatives both locally and nationally that we participate in throughout the year.

The Backpack to School program is one that involves employees, customers and our vendor partners. We have initiated a company-wide employee program to donate backpacks as well as donations from our loyal guests in the stores. Each backpack that is donated at one of our 44 locations will be distributed to children in that local area.

The cost for school supplies increases more and more each year, Wireless World would like to help make it a little easier for families to afford these essential supplies and ensure students start off the school year prepared and confident!

 A child must be present to claim their free backpack, no purchase is necessary to receive a backpack. Limited number available, while supplies last.
