Thrivent Builds has been working with Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio (HFHMO) since 2007; funding two homes per year for our affiliate. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans funds 65% of each home, HFHMO raises 25% and local Thrivent Chapters and Lutheran congregations raise 10%. Fifty percent of the volunteers on the build site are required to be of the Lutheran faith and 25 percent of volunteers are required to be Thrivent Financial members.
Thrivent Builds plans fundraisers each year, one of which is Shack City. For this fundraiser, youth gather together to create overnight “homes” out of cardboard boxes to promote the reality of homelessness in our community.
