President of Wireless Made Simple Erick Bruckner says whether it be in-person, or virtual, their mission is to ensure that kids are prepared for the start of the new school year.
On Sunday, Aug. 1, starting at 1 p.m. until they run out, Wireless Zone’s nine area stores will be donating backpacks filled with school supplies to local children.
“You know being locally owned and part of the local community has always been an important thing to us, so we like to give back where we can,” said Bruckner.
According to Bruckner, since they started the campaign, they’ve been able to donate over 5,000 backpacks.
