Our Time at the 5th Annual Back-To-School Jam and School Supplies Giveaway Community Day and Health Fair
On Saturday, August 10, Byline was honored to support the mission of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church of being called and compelled to meet the spiritual, social, physical and intellectual needs of all of God’s people by sponsoring the 5th Annual Back-To-School Jam and School Supplies Giveaway Community Day and Health Fair.
The Jam took place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Church and provided a wealth of services to the North Shore community, including dental cleaning, hearing and eye screenings, physicals, asthma testing, school supplies, face painting and other activities for school-age kids to get them all ready for school with the necessary medical checks and paperwork. There were also less “painful” opportunities for the kids (this WAS a “Jam,” after all)…including face painting, bounce houses and games for all the kids.
The parents (and Evanstonian adults for any reason) also got the benefit of the experts in attendance, receiving much-needed—and in many cases financially out of reach—health and well-being services too, including hearing and eye screenings, glucose screenings, BMI body fat analysis, blood pressure testing and massages.
For more than 100 years, Byline has been a key partner in the communities where our people live and work. Through sponsorships like this one, we continue to celebrate our city’s diverse neighborhoods and offer support to local and community business leaders in their efforts to engage local residents.
We know that their success is our success, and we are honored to contribute a small piece to the tapestry of the city we serve.
