Thrivent clients put generosity in action

Thrivent Action Teams enable clients to help others in their communities, beyond.

Build nets 462 water filters

Southeast Region

Last fall, Thrivent clients in the Southeast Thrivent Member Network built water filters in a regional initiative to provide people in 15 countries access to clean water.

Serving Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina, the Southeast Thrivent Member Network sponsored the Virtual Filter Build with the nonprofit Wine To Water.

Clients applied for a special Thrivent Action Team, and kits included three unassembled water filters, says Keri Taylor, Thrivent engagement specialist in the Southeast Region. Clients viewed a recorded video or participated online during a live educational event the last Tuesday of September, October or November.

“We wanted to educate them about the impact the water filters have,” Taylor says. “They then assembled the filters and shipped them to Wine To Water.”

In all, 154 Thrivent Action Teams built 462 filters. The event concluded on Giving Tuesday, when online donations to Wine To Water totaled more than $40,500. The Thrivent Member Network matched with $20,000.

The money supported the church’s MCREST program, which helps people experiencing homelessness. The Thrivent Action Team provided the food. Those participating could then purchase the unique bowls.
