[ZION, IL] The Thrivent Community - North Lake County office of Thrivent Financial - selected NorthPointe Resources as a recipient of a year-end giving project. This project was multi-tiered, including a donation of toiletries, an invitation for program participants to attend a ballet and a monetary donation. Thrivent’s generosity has not only benefited NorthPointe through providing increased resources but has also brought a new experience and increased community involvement.

Thrivent of North Lake County, which includes ten local churches and businesses, gathered toiletry supplies including lotion, shampoo, body wash, and toothpaste and placed them in bags for delivery during last Christmas season. In all, 110 bags were prepared and were shortly thereafter distributed to NorthPointe Resources’ SOARR Behavioral Health Services program participants.

Additionally, NorthPointe Resources’ program participants were invited to join Thrivent members at a performance of The Magic of the Nutcracker ballet held at Waukegan’s Genesee Theater in early December. Twelve program participants and several employees of NorthPointe enjoyed the performance and lunch at the theater. After the performance, Keith H., NorthPointe program participant, reflected, “I’ve never been to a ballet before! It was fun!” Similarly, The Magic of the Nutcracker was a first-time experience for many from the group – attendees were thoroughly amazed and grateful for the experience.

If that was not enough, in December, Thrivent also donated $1,000 to NorthPointe Resources. “Thanks to the generosity of Thrivent, NorthPointe Resources we will be able to resurface the driveways at some of our community homes, a necessity that we have had to put off until now,” said Kristen Hudrick, VP of Residential Services.

Thrivent is a financial services provider, dedicated to guiding its members and society to not only be financially responsible but also to live generously. Thrivent considers their organization successful when its members, their families, and our communities thrive in saving, spending, and sharing.
