The United Thank Offering (UTO) of the Episcopal Church awarded Holy Child and St. Martin Daly City the amount of $37,500 for the Elevator project which will provide access to our Physically Challenged members of the community in attending the Arthritis exercises, Social gatherings and Health and Wellness Center. This effort was made possible by the Diocese of California, through the leadership of Bishop Marc Andrus and Kathleen Piraino, Executive Director of Episcopal Charities and members of Holy Child and St. Martin and volunteers.

Thank you UTO! Thanks to all the donors! Thank you Bishop Marc and Kathleen and all of HCSM members and volunteers.

To God be the Glory for the things He has done and continue to do!
