Residents of Norwich will be able to benefit from a national backpack giveaway campaign.

The Cellular Connection has joined with its customers to donate 100,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through its “School Rocks Backpack Giveaway.” Local families are invited to bring their children to the local store across from Walmart on State Route 12 on August 2nd between noon and 2 pm to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders and more.

The backpacks will be given away on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
