Going back to school is expensive and many Toronto and Montreal families can’t afford to buy everything their children need to start the year off right.
That’s why Public Mobile is giving away 5,000 back to school supply kits for elementary and high school students in Toronto and Montreal. Public Mobile’s goal is to provide school supplies to children who might otherwise go without.
“At Public Mobile we serve the needs of hard-working Canadians,” said Public Mobile CEO Alek Krstajic. Added Krstajic, “For some parents, purchasing school supplies on top of new shoes, books and clothes can consume a big chunk of their monthly budget. Public Mobile wants to help hard-working families, by giving kids the tools they need to succeed.”
Public Mobile says it understands the importance of creating a monthly budget, especially for families on a fixed income. With a Public Mobile phone plan, students and their parents know they’ll get unlimited talk and text and no surprises when it comes to cost.
Public Mobile identified the most needed items for elementary and high school students and put together specific supply kits for each group. Elementary school students receive a spiral bound notebook and a pencil case containing a pencil, pen and eraser. High school students receive a scientific calculator.
There is a limit of one kit per student and students must come to the store to receive their free school supplies. A store locater can be found online at www.publicmobile.ca.
Formed in 2008, Public Mobile provides unlimited talk and text services to value conscious Canadians in Ontario and Quebec. Public Mobile opened stores in Toronto and in Montreal on March 18, 2010. Public Mobile launched network service in Toronto on May 26, 2010, and in Montreal on June 25, 2010. More information about Public Mobile can be found at www.publicmobile.ca
