LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - TCC, a cellular connection, is helping kids get ready to go back to school.

July 21, they held a backpack giveaway at the Verizon store in Lynn Haven.
It was a nationwide event, so children everywhere were able to pick out a bag filled with school supplies.
While this is something they do every year, workers say they did know there was a bigger need for it this year than in the past because of Hurricane Michael.
Kalani Nooney, a Tech Adviser for TCC, said, "We knew there was a need, so we tried to push a little bit harder for this one, I think I got on everybody's nerves trying to get stuff together to get it going, because they know it's important to me, and most of us all have kids or still, like I said, live here in this area, so we know how important it is."
Anyone was able to get a backpack as long as you had your child with you.
