McClinton delivers PPE, other resources to seniors and toys to students to help them have a safe and happy holiday
House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton is working to help local seniors and students have a safe and happy holiday amid ongoing concerns of the COVID-19 virus.
As part of her Holiday Health and Wellness Mobile Expo on Tuesday, McClinton teamed up with Independence Blue Cross and Gateway Health to secure and distribute personal protective equipment, cookies, word games and information about state resources to more than 300 of her wisest neighbors at Walnut Park Plaza, Paschal Homes and outside her district office.
On the same day, McClinton joined Hope Bag Mission to deliver toys they collected for students attending the satellite support center at Francis J. Myers Recreation Center.
"This holiday season is certainly different from years past, but that doesn't mean we can't find ways to still connect our most vulnerable neighbors with supplies aimed at helping them celebrate safely," said McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware. "I've said it once and it's worth repeating: I am so proud to have community partners and a staff who share my commitment to putting the people of Southwest Philly and Delco first. These events would not be possible without them."
Ahead of Thanksgiving last month, McClinton worked with King Saladeen and Fresh Direct to give away hundreds of free turkeys safely to her neighbors in need across the 191st Legislative District.
