The Merrill Community benefits from Thrivent Financial?s $10,000 in funding
Members from the Mid WI Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans have donated $10,000 in funding to help the Merrill Parks and Recreation Department rebuild the concession stand and restrooms at the Merrill Area Recreation Complex.
Through a joint effort with Merrill Financial Associates, Bill Smith, Dan Schneider, and Kevin Maloney, along with the Thrivent Financial Mid Wisconsin Chapter, and Dan Wendorf, Parks and Recreation Director, money was presented to help the Merrill Parks and Recreation Department.
Through its chapter programs, Thrivent Financial members come together in service to help their communities and congregations. Members are able to use Thrivent Financial dollars to add to the funds raised at an activity or to purchase materials for service projects, while energizing other members and volunteers to provide help that otherwise would not be available.
“This project is just one example of the real difference we’re making in people’s lives,” said Gary Porath, Director of Congregational Advocates of the Mid WI Chapter of Thrivent Financial.
All Thrivent Financial members belong to a local organization-most often a chapter-that provides a way for them to give back to their communities, congregations and causes they care about through charitable activities, as well as connect with one another for social and educational events.
Anyone can join in volunteer and educational activities hosted by Thrivent Financial. To connect with the Mid WI Chapter of Thrivent Financial, call Dan at 715-623-0447. To find other area Thrivent chapters, visit the Chapter Locator at www.thrivent.com/chapters or call 800-236-3736.
