CHARLOTTE, N.C. — LDS missionaries provided hours of service during the multi-city, dual-stake Day of Service here this year.
Mormon missionaries helped unload and sort donations at food bank drop-off cites throughout the area.
At the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina warehouse in Charlotte, N.C., nearly 20 missionaries painted hundreds of collection barrels. Laughter, camaraderie and a united effort to serve an agency that serves so many in need permeated the day's events.
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Second Harvest staff commented on how professional, kind and hard-working the missionaries were.
"They were a wonderful and necessary asset and set a perfect example for those that they came in contact with," said John Lewis, the Gastonia North Carolina Stake's director of public affairs.
Heather Jenkins is the Charlotte North Carolina South Stake director of public affairs.
