This month, Senator Christine Tartaglione (D-Philadelphia) hosted a series of community picnics that were highlighted by sunshine and smiling families. 

“August has become one of my favorite times of the year because it gives me the chance to meet so many beautiful children while helping their families ease the costs of getting a valuable education,” Senator Tartaglione said. “If we can give each child a backpack filled with school supplies, that’s one less cost their caregivers will have to bear. This is a real group effort that brings together our business sponsors, community organizations, recreation centers and day care centers for a day of summer fun.”

Full releases are available for the August 16 and August 22 events.
