THANKS to all !

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and The Salvation Army – Fox Cities have announced that $265,616 was raised during the 2013 Red Kettle Match Day. The 10-year total community investment is now just under $2.5 million. Thrivent Financial’s Red Kettle Match Day Challenge remains the largest continuous community matching day event for The Salvation Army in the United States.

 "We are always pleased when we see those in the community giving generously," said Captain Randy Tooley, corps officer, The Salvation Army - Fox Cities. "As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the partnership between Thrivent Financial and The Salvation Army – Fox Cities, we also celebrate the way our neighbors and community members display incredible generosity that benefits many people in the Fox Cities."

 Thrivent Financial matched $125,000 of the funds that were given on Friday, December 6. The community donated at more than 50 Red Kettles throughout the Fox Cities. Thrivent Financial employees and members volunteered to staff many of the kettles. Many donned costumes, sang songs and played instruments to help draw attention to the match day.

“Seeing people from the community brave the cold to give last Friday truly was heartwarming,” said Peter Gianopoulos, Red Kettle spokesman for Thrivent Financial. “It is inspiring to see the generosity of the Fox Cities demonstrated every year; this Red Kettle Match Day was no exception.”
