The event celebrated “Let’s Move and Stay Healthy Day” for children taking health classes at the center. Jefferson donated his time and matched financial contributions for local children’s activities 20-to-1, officials said. A Prentiss native, Jefferson said he wanted to give back to the community and considers Jackson and Mississippi his home. Earlier this month the former Utah Jazz center reportedly signed a three-year, $40.5 million contract with the Charlotte Bobcats that became official July 10.
