Thrivent members!
Time is running out to use up your 2017 Thrivent cards.
Did you know if you are a Thrivent member you could possibly get 2 Thrivent Action Team Cards per year to use towards a non-profit organization. This is different than the Thrivent choice dollars. If you haven't used yours up for this year you can still apply for it and it is good for 90 days. To learn more about it go to www.thrivent.com, click on making a difference, then click on Thrivent Action Teams. You can also talk to Kathy Wernberg about it and she can help you get registered for the cards.
