Mormons Among Volunteers Who Heeded President Obama’s Call for Service

“It was really great to see so many people in the community showing up,” said Kristin Scott, 27, of University City. “Everyone is so willing to help each other.”

She and Karen Meyer, 31, were among nearly 20 people with Mormon Helping Hands who decided to spend the day cleaning the street bearing the name of the civil rights leader.

“The leader of a nation asking people to go out and do it makes a big difference in inspiring people,” said Meyer, of St. Louis.
