Zion will continue to gather special gifts in the weeks to come to send to Lutheran Disaster Relief. Since the ELCA has standing organizations for this work, you can be assured that your entire gift will go directly toward aid to those in need. Checks can be made out to Zion Lutheran Church with the notation “Hurricane Relief”. Donations may also be made online by visiting www.elca.org. Additionally, Thrivent Financial is also collecting donations for disaster relief. They will be matching up to $3 million on individual personal donations. To donate to hurricane relief through Thrivent Financial, please visit the website at www.Thrivent.com.
