From Thrivent’s Website:
Thrivent Action Teams make it easy to live generously. It starts with a simple question: “Who can I help and how?”
Next, identify a community need and grab friends and family to form a volunteer team and brainstorm ways to address it. Thrivent provides a customized kit of resources to kick-start your fundraiser, educational event or service project. Your team provides the people power to bring it to life.
