Union City Public Works celebrates Arbor Day

Submitted By Nelson Kirk

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) provided "Helping Hands" community service throughout several communities in California on Saturday, April 26. In Union City, they assisted Dhillon Adarsh from the Boy Scouts of America Troop #110, planting and staking 275 native trees at Seven Hills Park to mark Arbor Day. Dhillon was involved in this project to become an Eagle Scout. The volunteers also installed drip line emitters to each tree. The project was assisted by Union City Public Works employees.

Mormon Helping Hands operates under the direction of local state and district presidents and bishops. The activities provide community service and are not proselytizing in nature. Mormon Helping Hands both responds to disasters such as hurricanes and gives aid aimed at improving conditions in the community for all to benefit. LDS project coordinators are Gary Furniss, Jeff Mellor, and Joseph Perkins.
