On Saturday October 8, 2016, the Austin, Texas Stake of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints donated time, talent, equipment and massive human power (850 women, children and men) to beautify and improve Wooten Elementary. Through the GoFundMe account Latter Day Saints donated $2300 for resources along with Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement Stores. This allowed for the purchase of trees, flowers, plants, seeds, mulch, bed liner, boulders, paints, brushes, lumber for a new pergola, tools and hardware.  The Latter Day Saint Drive began a book drive months earlier culminating in 1,000 books to be going home with the students.  I am honored to be a convert member of the church and to photograph this transforming event.
