PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- Wireless Zone, which has locations in Brewster and Mahopac, will be taking part in annual backpack giveaway.
The cell phone retailer is parting with Culture of Good to donate backpacks full of school supplies to needy children in Putnam.
“We are excited to bring this back-to-school initiative to Putnam County for the first time,” said Dave Robles, franchise owner of the stores in Putnam. “It feels great to give back in a way that helps families and children who need a little support. Every kid deserves a new backpack on their first day of school."
The backpack giveaway will take place on Sunday, July 23 between 1 and 4 p.m. The child must be present to receive the backpack. The stores are located at 111 D Independent Way, Brewster and 129 Route 6, Mahopac. Each participating Wireless Zone store will donate 100 backpacks. All leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
