McDonald's to give away backpacks
Red Wing McDonald's will hold "Backpack Saturday" 8 a.m. Aug. 3. The first 100 children in kindergarten through grade 8 who come to McDonald's accompanied by a parent will receive a voucher for a free backpack.
Families are encouraged to arrive early. After the backpack vouchers are gone, children in line will receive a coupon for a free McDonald's meal.
