Thrivent Choice dollars make a huge impact at Mar-Lu-Ridge.  We utilize these donations all year long to support the cost of daily maintenance and special programming for summer camp.  If you are a Thrivent member and would like to see your Thrivent Choice dollars working to improve the lives of children, please consider directing those funds to Mar-Lu-Ridge.
Mar-Lu-Ridge also has a variety of projects suitable for the new Thrivent Action Teams.  Any Thrivent member can put together a group of people and apply for seed money for the project of their choice.  Please contact the office for ideas, or let us know what you’d like to do – we appreciate  your support!
Visit the Thrivent website to learn more about Action Teams & Choice Dollars.
