Just head to a participating location during the scheduled time and dates. During the two-hour, in-store events, MetroPCS will hand out free cinch sacks filled with school supplies (limit 2 per adult) while supplies last. Each school supply kit will include a three-subject notebook, pocket folder, pencils, pens, eraser tops, glue sticks, ruler and a pack of 16-count crayons.
“The education of our community’s children is vitally important to our future. It brings great joy to our associates to have a small part in starting the school year off with new supplies to kids in our area,” said Peter Slater, director of field marketing for the north central region of MetroPCS in a news release.
