Free school supplies at Tampa Direct Auto Insurance stores

Bay area families can score free school supplies when they stop by any Direct Auto Insurance store throughout Tampa this summer.

From Saturday, July 19 through Saturday, Aug.16 the public is invited to stop by for a free school supply kit, when they get a no-obligation insurance quote.

Visitors are also invited to enter a drawing for a chance to win a $250 gift card to help pay for back-to-school needs. You can also nominate your favorite school for a chance to win $250.

The businesses will also be hosting a Back-to-School Bash at all Tampa locations on Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The events will have free food and giveaways and guests who receive an insurance quote during these events will receive a free backpack, while supplies last.
