Ten local teachers were the lucky recipients last Sunday night of free school supply packs distributed by The Cellular Connection in Sunnyside. Pictured are store manager Miguel Saldana Jr. (L) and sales associate Felipe Cruz with some of the supply baskets that included pencils, glue, pens, markers, erasers, paper, tissue boxes and more. Nationwide, the Verizon wireless retailer distributed supply packs to 3,500 teachers as part of the company’s Teachers Rock Supply Giveaway. The local store will also participate in a giveaway later this year that will see The Cellular Connection distribute 100,000 school supply backpacks to students nationwide. The Sunnyside store hopes to have about 200 of those backpacks to distribute to local students.
