Need Back To School Supplies? Attend The Race Communications Backpack Giveaway

Tri-Community NewsPlus

The first day of school is fast approaching for many students in the Tri-Community, and Race Communications wants to celebrate with a “Back To School Backpack Giveaway!”

On August 4, 2021, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, representatives from Race Communications will be on hand at their Phelan Office to hand out backpacks full of supplies. Their office is located at 4280 Phelan Road in Phelan, right next to Arturo’s restaurant.

Kits include a 17″ backpack, crayons, sharpener, erasers, pocket folder, glue stick, highlighter, spiral notebook, pencils, pens, a ruler, and a pencil case. There is a limited supply of backpacks, only 1,000, and they will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis, so be sure to get there early. Children must be present to receive a backpack, and only one backpack can be given to each child.

Race Communications is dedicated to providing reliable, high-speed internet and advanced communications at an affordable price. Working in partnership with the California Public Utilities Commission and several non-profit community advocacy groups, Race focuses much of its efforts on building out fiber networks and offering gigabit internet service to communities throughout California. Race Communications is currently providing gigabit fiber internet to the Phelan and Pinon Hills areas. They can be contacted at or by calling 877-722-3833.
