McClinton helps deliver PPE to more 300 seniors in Southwest Philadelphia amid COVID-19
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, so does state Rep. Joanna McClinton's efforts to protect her communities from the virus.
She teamed up with health care provider Aetna and Dedicated Senior Medical Center Wednesday to deliver critical personal protective equipment to more than 300 residents at Presbyterian Apartments in Southwest Philadelphia.
"If there's one thing we've learned from this pandemic it's that no one should have to go through it alone," said McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware. "I am proud to work with community partners who feel the same way and share my commitment to provide our wisest neighbors with the resources they need to not only help ensure their safety, but assist in our overall goal of stopping the spread of COVID-19."
McClinton noted that each care package contained essential items, including hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, toilet paper, soap and information about state-related assistance programs.
"We have made progress in flattening the curve, but now is not the time to let up," explained McClinton. "It's our responsibility now more than ever to put the health and well-being of others first by coming together and doing what's necessary to protect Pennsylvanians - especially those most vulnerable to the virus. And I don't plan on stopping anytime soon."
McClinton previously worked with Williams and Aetna in May to distribute similar self-care kits to residents at Paschall Senior Apartments and Hardy Williams Veterans Housing Center.
