Volunteers brave rain and cold to serve

-A +A
Cold and rain didn’t stop volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from collecting food, clearing weeds and leaves, and laying new bark at Rocklin and Whitney high schools last Saturday. More than 150 volunteers participated in the school projects. “As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe strongly in serving our communities,” said Event Organizer Maureen Dudley. “We are grateful to the Rocklin Unified School District for giving us this opportunity.” “We appreciate the help of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in collecting food as part of its Community Service Day,” said Ray Ward, president of the Rotary Club of Rocklin-Loomis Basin. “This extra food will make it possible for our Rotary Club to prepare even more Christmas baskets this year.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints counts nearly 6,000 members in the Rocklin, Loomis and Lincoln areas. ~Staff report
