This past Saturday, Josh and I were able to be a part of the Central Indiana’s Day of Service for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The event marked a celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Church’s Welfare Program. It was a Mormon Helping Hands event.
There were a couple church stakes involved. Combined we donated about $50,000 worth of food to 14-15 food pantries in Hamilton County, Indiana, as part of “Pack the Pantries.” We also volunteered to help clear out invasive plants at the Cool Creek Park in Hamilton county on Saturday, among other things. There were several hundreds of volunteers there on Saturday, and our family was a part of it. I wish we had a before and after picture of the wooded area we cleared of invasive plants. The parks department told us that it would’ve taken them a year to do what we were able to do in one day! Josh and I were grateful for the opportunity to serve. We even got these great Mormon Helping Hand T-shirts.
