Presiding Bishop H. David Burton Honored for Humanitarian Efforts

A Utah non-profit organization has bestowed its highest honor on Bishop H. David Burton, Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Bishop Burton was presented with the Utah Youth Village Helping Hand Award for his “extraordinary love and support to children” and for his “years of unparalleled service and commitment to the local community in Utah and to the betterment of communities worldwide,” according to Eric Bjorklund, president of the Utah Youth Village.

Several other local agencies also praised Bishop Burton and the Church for its ongoing worldwide humanitarian efforts. A video was shown at the award ceremony illustrating some of the Church’s efforts.

Later this month Newsroom will feature an extensive look at the many facets of the Church’s far-reaching welfare and humanitarian aid programs.
