The Verizon store in Hudson, 5 Atterbury Blvd., Suite 2, is having a backpack giveaway on July 23. The store will be giving 60 backpacks away between 1 and 4 p.m. The backpacks will be given on a first-come, first served basis.

The store has filled the 60 backpacks with school supplies, to help parents cross something off their list before the school year starts. Each backpack comes filled with a folder, a notebook, a ruler, a glue stick, a box of 12 pencils, and a pencil box.

The store reports it is starting this giveaway this year and will continue it next year.
