Caring for the Poor

In Conference Report, Oct. 1936, 3
 “Our primary purpose was to set up … a system under which the curse of idleness would be done away with, the evils of a dole abolished, and independence, industry, thrift and self respect be once more established amongst our people. The aim of the Church is to help the people to help themselves. Work is to be re-enthroned as the ruling principle of the lives of our Church membership”

Doctrine and Covenants 52:40
“Remember in all things the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted, for he that doeth not these things, the same is not my disciple”
