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.
