Look I have been out of work and the church has been helping me by paying some of my bills and providing food for us. I also get to help out by serving in the Bishop Store House, which this helps me feel good. I am helping back not just taking. I have also seen many other people have been benefited by it. Just go to the Humanitarian Center. The Church has been there in many other places....they don't just help members they help other people. They have provided medical services where none has been...they helped out Germany with wheat after WWII or I....many pounds of wheat was sent on train carts. They also have Family Services to help out with counseling (these are licensed counselors) .
When my husband lost his job and we were struggling financially for several months the LDS church offered to help us by sending us to a place called the bishop's storehouse to receive food. When we arrived I was surprised to find dozens of families like ourselves filling their shopping carts with food and necessities. I have since learned that the LDS church offers this all across the world and they do so through their members donations and investments in cattle ranches and such. We receive meats, dairy, and canned goods during the time my husband was un-employed. Everytime we visited the store house it was full of people receiving help. I'm thankful for the help we received in a time of stress and need. Thank you to all who make this charity possible.
