Helping Hands in Slovenia

Members in all three branches in Ljubljana were excited to join with a national effort to clean up Slovenia. Wearing their yellow Helping Hands vests, members from Ljubljana joined with members in the Maribor and Celje branches to help to clean up Slovenia in a day of service on April 17.

Preparations started a few months ago when national organizers invited local authorities and the general public to participate in locating sites across Slovenia where some felt to discard their unwanted rubbish.

The Church offered widespread support, including the full-time missionaries and President David H. Hill of the mission. Because of their smaller numbers, members in the Maribor Branch joined with members in the Celje Branch.

Members of the Ljubljana branch were assigned to clean up the vast area of Hill Roznik, behind the city park Tivoli, a favorite place among young and old who enjoy the out of doors by walking on several well designed paths through the woods. Joggers and walkers occasionally discard bottles, tissue paper and empty cans along these beautiful paths.
