Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, welcomed families of the 191st Legislative District to her Southwest Community Day. A place where the whole family could enjoy a day of fun, self-care, and entertainment. This fun-filled day dedicated to the community took place at McCreesh Playground June 2, 2018, from 11 AM – 3 PM.
The lot filled with 35 vendors that provided more information and resources to give out to the community. This was a completely free event with the hearts and minds of gathering people together for something positive. The Southwest Community Day included free health screenings, children activities, food, and so much more!
