The Church’s humanitarian arm, Latter-day Saint Charities, partnered with various organizations in California helped feed the more than 2000 families in California affected by the pandemic.
The humanitarian project was carried out at the Banc of California Stadium with the help of the Salvation Army to help equip and ready to provide the food boxes in the space of just four hours.
Have you ever wanted to change the world but have struggled to know how or where to start? As one volunteer recounts from a recent project with The Salvation Army: “People always think you can’t change the world, but … one box in the back of a truck, that’s changing the world. Changing the world is one simple act at a time.”At the Banc of California Stadium, The Salvation Army was equipped and ready to provide food boxes to more than 2,000 people in the space of just four hours. Each box contained 18 meals for families, as well as a grocery card to get fresh produce.This was just one of the many donation sites around the western United States. Thanks to you, we are able to partner with The Salvation Army USA and feed families in need using the monetary and food donations Latter-day Saint Charities receives from around the world.
