Extensive service projects in Menifee and Lake Elsinore on April 28 will receive volunteer assistance from members of the Menifee Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In Menifee, the Inland Valley Habitat for Humanity is holding “A Brush with Kindness” that may include weed abatement and yard cleanup, landscape services, trash removal, painting and repair for a dozen homes chosen by the organization. The expected 150 volunteers will come primarily from LDS congregations in the Menifee/Sun City area.

At the same time, the City of Lake Elsinore will enlist five other wards (congregations) as far away as Perris, to help plant aquatic vegetation in a 65-acre wetlands basin (now de-watered) at the south end of the city. In conjunction with this activity, the Church is donating 500 pounds each of rice and beans, so a portion of the expected 200 volunteers will be bagging these goods on behalf of H.O.P.E., a local charity.

April 28 has been designated as the Mormon Helping Hands Day of Service statewide in both California and Hawaii.
