What better way to celebrate 175 years of Relief Society than by providing Christlike relief to those in need?

Come hear from Linda S. Reeves, Second Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency, and Derek Westra, director of communications for Welfare Services, as they share inspiring stories of how Church members care for the poor and needy throughout the world.
