PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 15 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila/Delaware, will host a mobile office event as part of a Thanksgiving meal giveaway from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 at Sunshine Supermarket, 16 S. 60th St., Philadelphia.


Twenty-five local families have been selected to receive gift baskets, including a turkey and all other food items necessary for a Thanksgiving meal. The baskets will be presented at noon.


McClinton and her staff will be available to answer questions regarding state programs and to assist residents wishing to apply for state programs such as the winter heating assistance program, LIHEAP; the health insurance program for otherwise uninsured children, CHIP; and the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, PTRR.


"My staff and I can assist in those applications and also advise on the current open enrollment periods for both Medicare and the Healthcare Marketplace under the Affordable Care Act," McClinton said. "We can also help with requests for death or birth certificates.
