Missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints volunteer to help at Salvation Army

A day of service at the Salvation Army warehouse and thrift store


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints partners and donates to Salvation Army on Guam quite often to meet the needs of others.  After Super Typhoon Mawar hit the island on May 24, 2023, they were looking for volunteers to help with their overwhelming need for supplies.  The senior missionaries and some junior missionaries were ready and willing to help.  Some went to the Salvation Army Warehouse to help bag groceries that would be delivered and helped to remove items on a high shelf.  Elder David and Sister Ilene Jenkins, humanitarian missionaries in Guam, just happened to have one of their sons and his friend visiting them on the island.  They let these young men do the heavier lifting, which was a blessing.  The Salvation Army also needed help at their thrift store sorting items and helping with customers.  Due to families losing everything or even some items because of Mawar, their store is a blessing to them.  They’re able to come and either purchase what they need or receive a gift coupon valued at $30.00 to help them get the necessities, such as clothing.  The help from the missionaries was greatly appreciated and new friendships were made working together side by side.
