Mormon Volunteers From Winnipeg Sacrifice to Repair Flood-Damaged Homes

The familiar yellow T-shirts of Mormon Helping Hands were recently spotted in Minot, N.D. The Winnipeg Free Press reported about 300 men from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have been traveling from Winnipeg to Minot (more than 300 miles one way) to help repair flood-damaged homes.

Since mid-July, volunteers have made the 14-hour round-trip drive and worked 12-hour days beginning at 6:30 a.m. The men have also been sleeping in tents and eating their own food. The volunteers plan to help flood victims for several more weeks.

Below are several photos from the volunteers’ efforts.
