The National Retail Federation predicted the average person with children in grades K-12 would spend $97.74 on school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, and backpacks.

With more than 16 million children in the U.S. living in poverty, Orange Wireless Zone, 330 Boston Post Road, is working to alleviate the rising costs of school supplies through the fifth annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway in partnership with The Cellular Connection (TCC) and Culture of Good.

On Sunday, July 23 between 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., the local Wireless Zone and TCC stores will be inviting Orange families and their children to pick up a backpack filled with school supplies, and this is expected to be the biggest year yet with more than 230,000 backpacks full of books expected to be delivered in 2017.
