Mormon and Muslim teens team up for food drive

Teenagers from the Mission Viejo and Santa Margarita, Calif., stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and from the Islamic Shura Council joined together on Aug. 13 for a food drive to benefit local families, collecting an estimated 5,300 pounds of food.
