DI pods are in Enterprise for 2 Weeks

When Deseret Industries (DI) opened in 1938, Elder John A. Widtsoe established four guiding purposes for it: “First, those who have will be given another type of opportunity to help those who have not. Second, waste will be reduced by keeping our possessions in use as long as possible. Third, the work of renovation will employ many now unemployed. Fourth, articles in common use, of good quality, will be available at a low cost”

DI Pods are brought up two times a year to Enterprise to help those clean up their homes and give their unwanted goods to help other families. The pods will be located at the LDS Stake Center 88 S. Center Street.
