Action Team Supports Veterans
Colleen Nielsen, Baltic, SD, applied to lead a Thrivent Action Team and says, “It was one of the most amazing things I have ever been a part of!” Colleen gathered some donated fabric, purchased additional supplies with her Action Team Community Impact card, gathered a group of quilting friends and they went to work. They sewed quilts, runners, bags and wall hangings and sold them at a local farmer’s market and through Facebook posts all to benefit the Berakhah House who provides emergency shelter for veterans experiencing homelessness in Sioux Falls, SD. They raised over $9,200 to support this worthy cause.

From Colleen: I cannot express the joy that I have had while doing this Thrivent Action Team Project to benefit Berakhah House in Sioux Falls. I truly need to give a heartfelt thank you to my team members that helped make my vision a reality. Also, to everyone that purchased quilts, table runners, baskets, bags and more to benefit homeless veterans, my heart is full. ❤️

I am here to tell you that when your heart is in the right place for the right reasons, amazing things happen! This project took on a life of its own. It is incredibly heartwarming to witness what can happen when we all pull together for a very worthy cause. Thank you feels inadequate.
Giving Tuesday
You did it! On Giving Tuesday, Thrivent clients and caring individuals across the nation came together to make a meaningful impact. Through our clients' generosity, we raised more than $1.4 million dollars to support causes across the country — the most we've ever raised! Over 3,200 participants donated through Thrivent's Giving Hub and at in-person events benefiting 27 partnering organizations.

Locally, we partnered with Lost&Foundan organization that trains advocates, provides evaluation & research services, and connects fragmented mental health systems with the ultimate goal of ending suicide for young adults. $12,340 was raised through online donations and Thrivent provided a fundraising match of $6,170 for a total impact of $18,510!

THANK YOU to all of you that donated, commented, and/or promoted our Giving Tuesday efforts in partnership with and support of Lost&Found!
