Austin's House of Carson Valley received $701 from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Trinity Childcare Center.
The donation was made possible through volunteers taking part in Thrivent Financial's Care Abounds in Communities program from September 2007 through January 2008. The program provides financial support for volunteer projects and fundraising activities benefiting individuals, families and qualified nonprofit organizations.
In 2007 about $52,000 was distributed in the area through Thrivent Community and congregation events, according to Linda Reid, Care in Community director with Thrivent's Douglas/Alpine Chapter.
