Thrivent Partnership is Vital

Thanks to the dedicated volunteers of the West Lucas County Chapter and East Lucas County Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans the services delivered by LSS of NW Ohio to the clients of the Rosa Morgan Center, Crossroads and Open Dorr Family Resource Centers and the Volunteer Gaurdianship Program wards were all enhanced in a meaningful and compassionate way throughout the holiday season of 2011. The Toledo Emergency“Choice” Food Pantry will also receive much needed assistance from The Four Agency Golf Outing which will be supported with supplemental funds from Thrivent throughout northwest Ohio.

The volunteer and fraternal benefits of Thrivent have provided much needed support as LSS has worked hard to provide help and assistance to people throughout northwest Ohio.
