The Spotlight
California state senator Joel Anderson and his office took notice of the good work that Foothills United Methodist church did through their contributions to El Nido. The El Nido apartment complex is a transitional living situation for women who have escaped abusive situations and found themselves with nothing. Foothills came together throughout August to donate furnishings and comforts to fill an entire apartment for a mother and her 4 children. The certificate, accepted by coordinator Steven Topham on behalf of Foothills, is in recognition of "outstanding community service." A special thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
