Backpack giveaway coming up

NAUGATUCK — The Verizon Wireless store at 1007 New Haven Road is taking part in The Cellular Connection’s annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway.

Between 12 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, local families are invited to bring their children to the store to pick up a backpack filled with school supplies. One backpack per child present will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Each participating store will donate 200 backpacks. All leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.
