Boost Mobile is kicking off its “Back to School with Boost Mobile” campaign to provide families in need new backpacks and school supplies for their children.
At Boost Mobile, the customer is at the heart of everything we do and that comes through in our affordable family plan offerings and in our community giving. It’s also one of the reasons I am so proud to work at Boost Mobile. The “Back to School with Boost Mobile” initiative includes a series of donation events that will take place throughout the back-to-school season at Boost Mobile stores and Boost Mobile-sponsored community events nationally.
Our campaign kicked off last week with events in Georgia and North Carolina and so far the response has been great! Families interested in picking up a backpack and new school supplies can simply go to a participating Boost Mobile location on the scheduled donation event date. Events are being held throughout the back-to-school period and will include:
- Free backpack and school supplies (no purchase necessary, limited quantities available).
- “My First Phone” FAQ and training sessions led by brand representative experts.
- Opportunities for exclusive giveaways, discounts, raffles and more.
In addition to the in-store donation events spanning our stores nationwide, Boost Mobile will also be participating in 13 local community events in such major cities as Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and New York this back-to-school season. In addition to providing educational activities, resources and giveaways for the entire family, the offsite events will also be focused on getting kids the supplies they need for the upcoming school year.
Boost Mobile sees the back-to-school season as the perfect opportunity to give back to loyal customers and their families and to bring local community members together. I hope this campaign helps to make the season a little less stressful for families – and that area kids can go back to school with the essentials they need to thrive. Here’s to a great school year!
