Latter-day Saints work with their neighbors of other faiths cleaning up, fixing up and brightening up their communities. Mormon Helping Hands, in their familiar yellow shirts or vests, try to follow the Savior by giving service to those who need help. They’re often seen in their communities doing many things, including assisting in the distribution of Church humanitarian relief after a major disaster, restoring buildings and filling food pantries.
