500 families receive turkeys to celebrate Thanksgiving

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 20 – To enable families to celebrate Thanksgiving, state Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, in partnership with Saladeen Art, Creative Minds Inspire and Bernard Hopkins, gave away 500 turkeys to families of the 191st Legislative District.

“This is something I like to do annually to give back to the people of my district,” McClinton said. “It's the time of year for giving, and I'm thankful I'm able to continue this tradition. It really was such a joyous occasion. It truly means a lot to see the smiles on these families’ faces.”

Attendees had the opportunity to gather information on state programs such as the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicaid, the state Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

McClinton said she wanted to thank event sponsors and volunteers.
