Verizon Wireless Stores throughout Tennessee are collecting School Supplies to help ensure Kids have Resoures to Succeed

VerizonNashville, TN – Middle Tennessee residents can drop off new school supplies at their local Verizon Wireless stores to give students back-to-school essentials for the new school year. The items collected will help local organizations serving underprivileged and low-income youth throughout Middle Tennesse better prepare students to learn and excel in school.
