Throughout the month of November members of Resurrection Lutheran Church set a goal to collect 500 food items for the St. Joseph Community food shelf. It was a project near and dear to the RLC member’s hearts.
Not only was that goal met but they were also the recipients of a match provided by a challenge organized by Thrivent. The challenge through Thrivent was called “Give Thanks Give Back.” The goal was to collect at least 500 items for the food shelf in the month of November for a chance to be presented with a $500 match. Any groups in the community that were able to collect 500 items or more where eligible to receive that match.
Thrilled that they won, the members of RLC were further surprised when Thrivent doubled that amount making the total $1,000!
Furthermore, the $1,000 was matched again by a current grant that the food shelf was able to access. In the end RLC was able to donate 500+ food and items and $2,000 to the St. Joseph Community Food Shelf.
