Despite the heat, Wireless Zone, in the Fifth Street plaza near Giant Eagle, had its eighth annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway, distributing over 100 backpacks to area kids.

“It’s one of my favorite days of the year,” Store Manager Byron Arias said. “We try to make it a day and get the community involved.”

Each backpack was filled with various school supplies, including pencils, paper, folders, a ruler and glue during the July 21 event.
