Service projects at CIC by Latter-day Saints
Dozens of families from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints descended upon the facilities of Children In Crisis armed with garden tools and bundles of energy.
Starting at 8 a.m. April 30, the men wielded chain saws and pressure washers while women and children wrestled with weed eaters and low tech tools, which ran on elbow grease alone. Even 2-year-old Peter Davis won the battle with the rake and had a respectable pile of debris to show for it.
Like many churches, families in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are encouraged to serve others. Just recently a website called JustServe.org was organized to facilitate service opportunities. Anyone in the community with a service project can list it along with a description of the event, the date and time and the supplies or tools needed for participation. Hopefully this website can make serving our community a lot more efficient.
Heartfelt thanks were not only given to the workers by CIC, a lovely thank you note was mailed to each family expressing their sincere gratitude.
