Rim Country students can pick up a free backpack between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., Sunday, July 21 at the TCC Payson store, 401 N. Beeline.

The store is one of more than 850 participating TCC and Wireless Zone stores teaming up to donate 187,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through TCC’s annual School Rocks Backpack giveaway. Since 2013, TCC has donated more than 950,000 backpacks filled with supplies.

The 200 backpacks available at the Payson store, a Verizon authorized retailer, are filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and more.

The TCC store and its staff invite Rim Country families to bring their children to the store to pick up a backpack.

They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
