McDonald’s restaurants throughout the Valley and northern Arizona will host “backpack Saturday” 8 a.m. July 28, giving away 20,000 backpacks and helping thousands of children prepare for school.

Backpacks will be given away to the first 100 school-age children at each of 200 McDonald’s restaurants in Maricopa, La Paz, Mohave, Yavapai, Coconino, Gila, Navajo, Apache, Graham, and Pinal counties. The free backpack offer excludes Walmart and mall McDonald’s restaurant locations.

In addition, 50 McDonald’s restaurants will host health and safety fairs with state, county and city community service organizations providing health screenings and information on dental care, health, nutrition and safe routes to school for local families.

Visit McDonald’s Facebook page at community.mcdonalds.com/phoenix for McDonald’s locations hosting Health & Safety Fairs.
