SHARE Community joins service project

SOROCABA, Brazil — Through a partnership between the Church's service organization, "Helping Hands," and a local television station, TV Alianca, an affiliate of Rede Globo, Brazil's largest station, and others in the community, a large service project was completed in this city in December.

The partnership involved the station publicizing an effort to provide donated gifts for 6,000 children. Some 19 meetinghouses were designated as drop-off locations where Church members and their friends served as volunteers. Other organizations also joined the effort, including the Attorneys of Brazil and the Park of Mato, a zoo, as well as schools and their alumni.
