Thrivent Action Teams help clients make a difference in ways that matter.

Gardening for good

St. Paul, Minnesota

Joseph Baltrukonis, Jennifer Porwit, and Stacy Sola wanted to assist the Ramsey County Master Gardeners program in their efforts to educate their community on plants, food production and protecting the environment. So, they led a Thrivent Action Team to help organize and get the word out about its annual plant sale.

More than 150 Ramsey County Master Gardener volunteers spent the spring growing plants, updating the website, managing inventory, arranging advertising and determining logistics for customer plant pickup. The sale included more than 3,000 annual, perennial, native, herb, houseplant, vegetable and tomato plants as well as starter plants from four vendors.

The funds generated from the sale are used to educate the public through printed materials and programs conducted via Zoom this year. Funds also support horticulture scholarships at the University of Minnesota and youth group gardening projects in the community.

Book lover’s fundraiser

Stoughton, Wisconsin

Lesley Johnson’s passion for reading inspired her to lead a Thrivent Action Team to support the local library and promote reading. They did a book lover's journal fundraiser. The team of 24 volunteers printed 500 hardcover journals and 1,000 bookmarks to sell at a local festival. The effort raised $1,897 for the library as well as journals for its outreach programs.

Help for people experiencing homelessness

Henderson, Nevada

As part of the Summer for the Homeless Campaign supported by Grace Lutheran Church, Mildred Palmer formed a Thrivent Action Team to gather supplies and assemble 250 kits for people experiencing homelessness in Las Vegas Valley. The kits included a water bottle, food items and toiletries along with a note of the love of God by Rev. Anthony DiLibertio.

Foster your community

Roseville, Minnesota

Jack’s Basket organization celebrates babies with Down Syndrome and provides new parents with resources and support within the community. Jodi Dean and her granddaughter Payton, a student at North Heights Christian Academy, formed a Thrivent Action Team to put seven baskets together for families welcoming their babies. The baskets included items from a wish list and the class spent time assembling them and writing notes for each one.

Annual House Refresh

Twin Peaks, California

To help an elderly homeowner, Laurinda Fuller coordinated a Thrivent Action Team of 13 volunteers. They installed a bathroom on the lower level of a home to make it more accessible. The team also hooked up an outside irrigation system to assist in maintaining the homeowner’s fruit trees and vegetation.
