November Food Shelf Challenge
With an increased need for food security, the Thrivent Member Network - Nebraska Region hosted a November Food Shelf Challenge. We extended an offer for the first 50 Thrivent clients to apply for the challenge, which consisted of collecting at least 500 non-perishable food items and health essentials for their local food shelf and the organization would receive $500 from the Nebraska Region as a generosity multiplier for their efforts.

Fifty clients took the challenge and fifty food shelves across the region will receive a $500 check upon completion of the food drives.

We are thankful for all that encouraged these communities and their neighbors to #LiveGenerously this holiday season!
