Auckland Latter-day Saints Clean Up Graffiti

Around 200 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Auckland’s western suburbs painted over tagging and graffiti last Saturday, according to a report in the Western Leader.

The newspaper reports that the project is the brainchild of the Henderson stake [similar to a diocese] of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Tag Out Trust.

“Every year the Church works with a community group as part of the initiative Mormon Helping Hands.”


Tag Out Trust project leader Terry Davis told the Western Leader that “tagging is a continuous problem in West Auckland.”

“The Church's [Henderson] public affairs director Marilyn Manukia says volunteers want to enjoy the beautiful west environment and this project will help with that.”
