“Women Produce Thousands of Humanitarian Service Items,” Ensign, Aug. 2002, 78
As part of the annual Brigham Young University Women’s Conference, Relief Society sisters took part in a massive service project on 3 May. Thousands of women organized into assembly lines to create hygiene kits, school-supply packages, and fleece hats and jackets to send to disaster victims or others in need all over the world. As a group, the sisters assembled some 67,000 hygiene kits and 15,000 school kits.
The kits will be distributed by the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City. There is constant demand for them in many different areas of the world.
Major corporations donated most of the materials for the school kits, hats, and jackets.
