Mormon church helps area groups

Sun., June 28, 2009, midnight

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Hayden Lake Stake, recently organized the community service project “Mormon Helping Hands.”

The project included preparing a 1,000-foot bicycle path that will eventually be made into a 3,500-foot path, to encircle the property of the Children’s Village in Coeur d’Alene. The volunteers scraped and painted the Trinity Group Homes in Coeur d’Alene, and the storage buildings. And finally, volunteers built shelving and sorting racks for clothing, and cleaned the floors and furniture at Fresh Start shelter in Coeur d’Alene.

Approximately 300 volunteers participated in the project.

A picnic was held on Saturday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pavilion, 407 E. Honeysuckle Ave. in Hayden, for the volunteers and residents of the facilities.
