Shopping for school supplies is a drag, so why not enter to win some when you grab a burger? From August 1-9, 19 Detroit area McDonalds owners will have a sweepstakes to give away a total of 1,900 McDonalds branded backpacks filled with school supplies.  It is part of the “Backpackin’ to School” sweepstakes.

The backpacks will come with many of the tried and true school supplies including a spiral notebook, crayons, a ruler, #2 pencils as well as other supplies.

“My fellow McDonald’s restaurant owners and I have doubled down on our efforts to support local youth and education this year by giving away twice as many backpacks at each participating location,” says Jon Campbell, McDonald’s restaurant owner. “We are excited to reach more children and families through the expansion of this meaningful program.”
