  • Our Diocese Is the first to put our money Where Our mouth is with http://www.hannahshousemichiana.com/ and http://www.womenscarecenter.org/. We have many coming to us from all over. Different cities and states. It has been so successful that we have to grow. (a new House) And others are copying them. Then there The St. Vincent DePaul Society. We distribute Food,Toiletries and even clothes, at Christmas toys to those that need it. Also we do our best to help those that need extra help in the winter to pay their utility bills.

  • Our LDS ward does a lot of things. Every 4th month the women spend every Wednesday helping in our local community center, putting together packages to go to families who need them. (Its every 4th month because the other months other churches have volunteered). The youth also do projects at least once a month - my favorite is they go to the houses of those who use wheel chairs, and build ramps so the people can get in and out of their houses without having to be carried. The children do activities all the time for the elderly, rather it be making them cards and treats, or visiting their houses and singing them songs. There are lots of other things but these are the first that came to mind :)

  • we/church continuously contribute to 'backpacks for schools', community clearinghouse, and other local organizations that feed/house/free-clinics for the less fortunate.
    during the tithes/offerings, bags of non-perishables brought by individual members are picked up along the aisles. you can bring a bag of 'extra' grocery items each week, if you feel led.
