VOLUNTEERS SPRUCE UP CITY BEFORE RUGBY WORLD CUP

Latter-day Saint volunteers have fun preparing for tomorrow’s ‘Mormon Helping Hands’ project in Auckland.

AUCKLAND , New Zealand — Volunteers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will spruce up parts of Auckland tomorrow (Saturday 20 August) to help prepare the city for next month's Rugby World Cup.

Latter-day Saints will gather at three sites in Old Papatoetoe, Blockhouse Bay Township and Eden Terrace tomorrow at 10am wearing the distinctive yellow 'Mormon Helping Hands' shirts.
The volunteers will be painting over graffiti, pulling weeds and picking up rubbish.
"It's an exciting time as we get ready to welcome the world to New Zealand," says Jared Viljoen, spokesperson for the Church. "We want to do our part to make sure we look our best."
For more information call Mr Viljoen on 09-838 4809 or email him at jared.viljoen@campbellrose.co.nz .

Latter-day Saints regularly join with others in communities across the nation and worldwide in similar 'Mormon Helping Hands' projects.
