“We thank The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for its generous donations to the Kansas City region that will benefit thousands of families in the surrounding communities,” said Missouri governor Michael Parson.
Those remarks were given on January 24, when two truckloads of food and commodities from the Church of Jesus Christ in Salt Lake City arrived in Kansas City, bringing much needed food and other supplies for two Kansas City charities.
“We are also proud of the strong relationship that has developed between the State of Missouri and the Church. We know that when Missourians are in need or tragedy strikes, our communities can count on members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to extend a helping hand,” Parson said.
Governor Parson joined Elder S. Gifford Nielsen, the Church’s North America Central Area President, in welcoming the donations.
“It is an honor to be with Missouri Governor Michael Parson in this worthwhile cause. He has a passion to make things better for the people he leads, and we join with him to help those in need by donating this food. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we strive to follow the Saviors’ perfect example to serve and lift others,” said Elder Nielsen.
