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-

    You are offering a wonderful service. Can you tell us the appropriate ages for the children? would these be appropriate for middle or high school students, or just primary age? Thank you!!

      Hi Kathy! We’ll give backpacks to students of all ages, not just primary school! As long as your students are present at the event with you, they’re eligible for a backpack!
