Setting records, sharing hope at Time Out for Women

They had hoped to gather enough supplies for 150 hygiene kits to donate to the Road Home shelter.

Laurel Christensen asked the 3,900 women on Friday night at Time Out for Women to bring any extra body wash and other toiletries back Saturday morning as they were short a few supplies.

In the end, about 720 kits were assembled.

It was a record for the Deseret Book-sponsored event, which has been to 18 cities on the 2010 Infinite Hope tour.

Friends Laura Holk, Danielle Bigelow and Karina Taylor, all mothers from South Jordan, Utah, helped put together the kits, which admittedly wasn't too difficult.

The line of women filled clear plastic bags with washcloths, small bottles of shampoo, toothbrushes, razors and other items.

"It helps to give back," said Taylor, especially since they all had enjoyed the two-day event that included different presenters and musicians.
