Thrivent’s Make a Difference Day was Sunday, October 28. Make a Difference Day is just what it sounds like, one day to make the biggest impact you can. When this idea is shared by many, it becomes quite powerful. Thrivent members can choose to lead a Thrivent Action Team to help a cause that touches them personally or their entire community and make a difference.

When Jeff and Melanie Meyer of Thrivent Financial found themselves personally affected by cancer, they became familiar with the needs and stresses of the disease, and what it would take to overcome it. Which lead them to Circle of Hope. Jeff’s question was a simple one -” What can we do to help? What do you need?”

A little about Circle of Hope

Circle of Hope’s Mission: “We strive to provide financial assistance to uninsured and underinsured individuals with colon, reproductive and melanoma cancers, and a wide range of supportive programs to those fighting all cancers today, so that they have a brighter future tomorrow. Circle of Hope helps clients access and understand the treatment process and provide financial assistance for medications, co-pays, second opinions, Cobra premiums, testing and transportation to treatments to qualified individuals.”

The Request

Circle of Hope had just found a new home in an older building. A building with the office space that offers them so much more room to do what they are called to do. There is a space for yoga, for learning, for massage and so much more. The one thing that they really thought they could use was new ceiling tiles. There had been quite a rain, and then quite a leak resulting in unsightly ceiling tiles. Now this seems like a simple thing to most of us, but Circle of Hope explained that they would not use funds received for patient care on beautification projects. So, ceiling tiles it was.

The Action Team

Jeff and Melanie created an Action Team that just happened to coincide with Circle of Hope’s 31 Days of Hope campaign – making the Action Team the last event of the Days of Hope calendar. Jeff and Melanie’s Action Team raised $1500 for Circle of Hope and their ceiling tiles. More than 30 people gathered at the new offices of Circle of Hope in Santa Clarita for a tour of their facilities, hors d’ouvres and an understanding of what this local non-profit organization does for our community.

You can apply to lead your own Thrivent Action Team! Call Jeff and Melanie Meyer today to find out how.
