Local state Rep. Jeffrey Sánchez held his 7th annual Back-to-School Jam celebrations in August, according to a press release.
The events were held at the Bromley-Heath housing development in Jamaica Plain, the High Steet Veterans Housing in Brookline and the Mission Main housing development in Mission Hill.
“It’s important to get the neighborhood children excited about school, learning and staying healthy,” said Sánchez, according to the press release.
Representatives from health institutions provided education materials and free health screenings to attendees. Sanchez also gave out more than 90 backpacks, along with pencils, pens and books, during the three events.
