Verizon Branches Host "Backpacks 4 Kids" Event

The Team Wireless Verizon dealer hosted it's second annual "Backpacks 4 Kids" event at over 50 locations.

Parents and students were allowed to stop by on Saturday and pick out their own backpacks with over $40 worth of school supplies, all from donations in the community.

The Antigo branch was able to supply 56 bags for local students.

"I know that for myself I've had donations anywhere between a dollar and $20," said Assistant Store Manager, Leah Anderson, "$4 a donation provided one backpack so, $20 a donation is five backpacks for our local community."

This year's event brought in over $80,000 worth of school supplies.
