Throughout the year, the Thrivent Member Network–Southeast Region hosts several events across the region, giving members an opportunity to come together, learn and share what it means to be wise with money and live their lives more generously. Looking forward, our hope is to foster greater connection among our members by sharing stories of how you are making a difference in the lives of others. We’ll also continue to find ways to learn what matters to you—what activities you want to be involved in and how you’d like us to connect with you.
We know caring for others is important to you – even when we’re required to maintain social distancing. So here are some ideas on how to volunteer from your couch or computer.
Project Gutenberg – Proofread, Procure and Share Free eBooks
Amnesty Decoders Project – expose human rights violations
Red Cross Digital Volunteer – online social engagement
Crisis Text Line – Become a crisis counselor
LibriVox – Read a book and record it for the internet
Be My Eyes – Provide live video call assistance to the visually impaired
Upchieve – "Coach" (tutor) a low-income student in math
Spotify (or similar service) – make music therapy playlists for elderly
If you are working from home these days, you could be saving 2-3 hours a day in prep and travel time. We encourage you to take advantage of those extra hours to educate yourself.
More than Money Matters is a series of educational workshops designed to help participants take steps to improve their financial well-being. The workshops incorporate Christian values with timely financial topics – protecting against identity theft, building a credit history, talking to elderly parents, and more.
