Verizon and Lorenzo de Zavala Middle School partner for back-to-school backpack donation


Irving, Texas. August 17, 2017

On Wednesday, Verizon partnered with Irving’s Lorenzo de Zavala Middle School and their annual Parents’ Night, providing over 900+ free backpacks filled to the brim with school supplies in advance of their first day of school.

"Needless to say, it was a very rewarding evening with a lot of really excited middle schoolers – some even received their first backpack ever.", said Erin Neves.

Verizon specifically picked de Zavala Middle School because it is in its backyard – Verizon’s South Central HQ is in Irving, and has called it home for well over 30 years.

This is part of a larger Verizon initiative called “We Need More” in which they are providing nearly 9,000 backpacks in 12 states.
