Welcome to Day of Community Service – Mormon Helping Hands Hawaii, a website for planning and sharing joint community service projects throughout Hawaii. On April 26, 2014, thousands of volunteers, including community service organizations, church and civic groups and other community partners, will work together to serve and beautify Hawaii. This website is hosted as a courtesy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As in year’s past, Mormon volunteers will serve under the banner of “Mormon Helping Hands”, a program directed by the LDS Church to provide community service and disaster relief to those in need.
A day of service
The program began in 1998, when the Church asked local South American Church leaders to reach out to their communities through service. Responding to the call, leaders set out to establish an annual Day of Service.
Today, similar Mormon Helping Hands “Day of Service” projects are organized in every corner of the globe. Hundreds of thousands of members and friends of the Church participate.
Hawaii Helping Hands
In Hawaii, members of the Church volunteer countless hours, talents, and resources to annual Mormon Helping Hands projects. Working to identify community needs with civic and local leaders, members of the Church organize service projects, put on distinctive yellow Mormon Helping Hands vests and t-shirts, and go to work for the improvement of the communities in which they live.
Mormon Helping Hands – Hawaii is a resource for Church members and other volunteers in Hawaii to find project locations, get involved, and spread the word to their friends, neighbors and community leaders. All are welcome to participate. Visit the Map to view project locations throughout the state.
