Free Backpack Giveaway

Mark your calendars! Our 7th annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway will be on Sunday, July 21 from 1-4 PM. Our stores around the country will be handing out free backpacks filled with school supplies on that day, while supplies last. Backpacks will be handed out on a first come, first served basis. Each child receiving a backpack must be there with you at the giveaway.

Why do we do it?

Each year, it costs more and more to send a child to school, and we wanted to do our part and make it a little easier for families to afford these essential supplies. We want as many kids as possible to show up on their first day prepared, confident, and with a brand new backpack.

Learn more about our volunteer initiatives here and here.

See you on Sunday, July 21!

    I walked in to this store on Tuesday (no appointment) and was greeted immediately by a very helpful employee! I did my research on iPhones and knew exactly what I wanted. He took the time to show me everything on my new XS Mac and I love ❤️ my new phone! Thank you for the great service and time you spent with me! You guys are great and I highly recommend this store! -Colleen-

    Will all locations start at 1pm & can college students get a backpack also?

      Hi Jay,
      All locations should be starting the backpack giveaway at 1PM, but you can always call your local TCC store to confirm. Our giveaway is for students of all ages, so they will be eligible as long as the student receiving the backpack is with their parent or guardian.

    Sadly the store in Robertsdale, Alabama is closed on Sundays so it looks like we don’t get this blessing. It’s a great community service by the company in general though..

    The manger in margate nj is wonderful I was unable to make it to the event because I had no way there. He had brought the backpacks to my kids. My kids and I were so grateful. What a great guy he should be recognition for going the extra mile when he didnt have to.
