Thousands of volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday participated in a day of service designed to improve communities throughout California.
Partnering with interfaith service groups and community groups, “Mormon Helping Hands-Serving Our Communities” has worked with city, county and state officials to plan projects across the state.  This day of service was designed to benefit hundreds of state and local parks, schools and municipalities.
Various service projects took place locally in the South County area.  Members of the Manteca Stake worked on several projects:  The Manteca congregation’s members painted the Lathrop-Manteca Fire District firehouses on Lathrop and Austin roads and the firehouse on South Union Road in Manteca.  The Ripon members did landscape maintenance at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post located on West Ripon Road.  Members from Lathrop worked cleaning up the parks in the City of Lathrop.     
Members from the city of the Tracy cleaned and beautified the Sycamore Parkway and painted benches and trash cans.  They also worked at the Tracy Interfaith Ministry, building and hanging new shelves and general clean-up.  
These service projects are a way for the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to give back to the community and to show love for their neighbors.
