Mormon 'Helping Hands'

Mormon 'Helping Hands'

Every year thousands of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) participate in community improvement efforts known as 'Mormon Helping Hands' projects. Mormons around the world join with others in their communities, including members of other faiths, in similar initiatives. In late 2011 and early 2012 Mormons and others from the lower North Island assembled donated books for delivery to schools in Fiji. Volunteers are seen here wearing bright yellow 'Helping Hands' vests to identify themselves as part of this project.
