WORCESTER, Mass. - The Main South Business Association held its Back to School Fiesta Monday at YMCA’s Fuller Family Park in Worcester.
The event included free haircuts, backpacks, music and art. The MSBA also held a raffle for a chance to win an eclectic scooter, iPad, and an apple watch.
“At this event, we're kind of being mindful and being intentional to help families within the local community to get them started, to get them into the school year with backpacks and supplies to try and get a burden off of families that may not have the resources to do so,” said Jessica Velez, president of the MSBA. “Hopefully this is an impact for our local community to help them get back to the school year.”
"We have about 150 backpacks, food and supplies” said Robert Monegro, vice president of the MSBA. “This year, we also rolled out haircut with different guys that came to help us with that, and all the activities for the kids.”
The Main South Business Association supports local business owners in the Main South neighborhood.
