MOTION GRAPHIC: Helping the Needy;
It's a Hand Up

Each year thousands of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donate more than 7 million hours to the Church's food production and welfare facilities as they strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ by serving those around them.

When someone, despite their best efforts, can't provide for themselves or their family, the Church and its members step in to help. It's not a handout — it's a hand up.
