More opportunities to serve this weekend 9/16-17:

We have been asked by the Area Seventy to send out as many work crews as possible again this Saturday and Sunday.  Thousands of additional LDS volunteers will be coming in to help us from across Texas.  Our LDS volunteers from Louisiana and Mississippi are heading to Florida to help with Hurricane Irma clean-up.   Please sign up with your ward leaders to join a crew and invite friends and neighbors to join us!

Requesting Help for Homeowners.  If you become aware of people who still need assistance re-mediating their homes, please have them call 844-965-1386. If you have friends, family, or co-workers for whom you’d like Mormon Helping Hands to personally assist them, please email pmillerkaty@gmail.com with their name/address/phone number/details of the work needed/and your ward name.  Since we aren’t doing any mid-work remediation, please communicate to your friend that our next availability to assist them will be this Saturday/Sunday.

 Thank you for your efforts in this great work!
