The Oneonta Verizon store at 762  Rt. 28, on Oneonta's Southside is hosting a free backpack/school supply giveaway on Sunday August 30.

District Manager Teddy Unger told Townsquare Media, "We have just re-opened and we are looking very much forward to this event.  It will be a drive-through event. We ask folks to come to the store location and then pick from a menu of different backpacks filled with school supplies that we will have on hand.  Store employees will then go inside and retrieve it for you and you are on your way.  If you have more than one child we encourage you to take what you need.  Our employees will be following all COVID-19 safety protocols with hand sanitizers, protective masks, etc.  The free backpack giveaway is this Sunday from 1-4 and we look forward to seeing everyone come by and say hi."

This is on a first come first serve basis until supplies last.  For more information phone 607-353-8560.
