Spouses of US Governors Gather to Serve at Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center


A gathering of volunteers — all spouses and associates of U.S. governors — stood shoulder-to-shoulder on Thursday assembling hygiene kits at the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City.

The makeshift team included at least one Latter-day Saint woman. The others were, perhaps, Catholic or Protestant or Jewish. Maybe they did not belong to any organized faith at all.

No matter. They were united in a common purpose to help others — a symbolic representation of the “pure religion” happening almost every day at the center.
