While supplies last, children 12 and under in Central New York can get a free backpack for back to school and a free stack of pancakes from a popular restaurant.

Denny's locations across CNY are helping area residents out by trying to offset the cost of back to school supplies with free backpacks.

You can bring your child (12 or under) to any Denny's in the area every Monday through Friday from 2 - 8 p.m. through August 25 to get them a backpack and a nice meal.

Here's the locations of Denny's in the area:

  • UTICA, 180 N GENESEE ST
  • NEW HARTFORD, 8548 SENECA TURNPIKE

If you're on the other side of the coin and have extra back to school supplies that you would like to donate, consider helping out with Big Frog 104's 'Pack To School Supply Drive.'
