Versizon-Cellular Plus giving away back-to-school supplies

Press release

Verizon-Cellular Plus in Havre will be giving away free backpacks filled with school supplies Saturday, July 29, from 10 a.m. to noon.

“We are proud to give back to our local community by helping students kick off the school year with a brand-new backpack and essential supplies,” President Adam Kimmet said. “Our hope is that this event will help alleviate some financial challenges for families. It’s very rewarding to see the kids confidently walk out of the store, excited to show off their new backpack and prepared to rule the school year.”

The Verizon-Cellular Plus Backpack to School program also incorporates contributions from employees, customers, and vendor partners. An internal employee donation program was organized, and stores are also accepting donations from their guests to help as many families as possible. Donations stay local so each backpack that is donated at a specific location will be distributed to children in that same area.

No purchase is necessary to receive a backpack, but a child must be present with an adult to claim their free backpack. A limited number are available and will be distributed while supplies last.

Cellular Plus is located at 1705 U.S. Highway 2 West, across from the Great Northern Fairgrounds.
