Back-To-School Jamboree Hosted By Mattapan United

On Saturday September 22, 2012 Mattapan United put together a Back-to-School Jamboree at the Mattahunt Elementary School on 100 Hebron Street. The event was a great success. The Community Fabric Action Group of Mattapan United was able to give away 150 book bags with school supplies to students from the Mattapan Community.
The Mattapan Library, along with Friends of the Mattapan Library Group, was generous in donating books for all reading levels and interests. They were also invigorated by the community turn out on this sunny day. Everyone participated in the offerings of the day: food from Mattapan House of Pizza, music provided by Touch 106.1, fun activities for the children such face painting, balloon making, performances by PACE, a live jazz band, and an all boys singing group. We also had a voter registration and resource tables for adults.

Over 300 people attended the event that day.
Mattapan United plans to make this an annual event for the community, bringing everyone together, to continue to highlight how important education is to Mattapan residents and would like all of our students to strive for success.
