Thrivent, Habitat finish no. 2K

The 2,000th home built through an alliance of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Habitat for Humanity International was dedicated in December in Minneapolis.

"Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity," a four-year, $125 million alliance, resulted in construction of homes in 46 states and the District of Columbia.

The alliance concluded last year, but a $15 million program, "Thrivent Builds Homes," will focus on volunteers from Lutheran congregations and Thrivent members. Its goal is to build 181 homes in 37 states in 2010.

a wonderful accomplishment and so good to hear that more will be built in 2010. Four were just dedicated in my city of Reading PA.
