New Coupon Ministry

Thrivent Disaster Response
California Wildfires

Intense heat in the western U.S. has fueled several devastating wildfires. As of July 30th, the Carr fire in Shasta County of Northern California alone has burned more than 95,000 acres – claiming more than five lives, destroying at least 600 homes and causing the evacuation of nearly 40,000 people.

You can help those whose lives and livelihoods have been affected. And Thrivent makes it easy to do.

Thrivent will pay the processing fees to ensure 100% of your donation goes directly to help those in need. In addition, Thrivent Member Network-Pacific Sierra Region will match your donation dollar for dollar ‒ up to $100,000.

This matching opportunity will run until the $100,000 match is met or until October 31, 2018, whichever comes first.
