Give Back to Your Community –
Community service helps us to follow the Savior’s admonition to “love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22:39)
“Our community has a great need for dependable and honest citizens who are willing to help. The Lord expects us to love and serve our neighbors and friends. This does not require great acts of sacrifice; friendship is often based on small acts of kindness. Part of being a good neighbor is watching out for the needs of others, including widows and orphans.” The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
“We may not solve world hunger immediately, but we’re convinced that by serving with each other in our local communities, we’re paving the way for much broader changes. Our individual efforts don’t need to be huge—a little bit of change here, a few hours there—but even small efforts quickly add up to make a real difference.”
