Peter G. Kelly, a founder and senior principal of UKS, was honored by the Archdiocese of Hartford at its 9th annual Catholic Charities Help & Hope Breakfast on December 12. More than 400 people were in attendance.
In accepting the Help & Hope Award, Mr. Kelly, who serves as Chairman of Malta House of Care Foundation, reflected on the many individuals who partnered with us over the past eight years to establish and operate the Malta House Care Mobile Van. He pointed out that since its opening in 2006, the Malta House of Care Mobile Clinic has provided over 31,000 free patient visits to the uninsured through a volunteer staff of over 80 physicians, nurses and non-medical volunteers.
“This is important work and we are very proud of the work of our team,” Mr. Kelly remarked. “We have been put on Earth to help others when the opportunity is given.”
Proceeds from the Catholic Charities’ annual Help & Hope Breakfast benefit children in need throughout Hartford, Litchfield and New Haven Counties and further its mission to promote the dignity, self-sufficiency and human potential of those in need.
