St. Mark’s Thrivent chapter distributes checks

The Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania Thrivent Chapter No. 30763 of St. Mark Lutheran Church, 133 Lovers Lane, Steubenville, presented four $650 checks on Dec. 18 to the Salvation Army of Jefferson County, Urban Mission Ministries, American Red Cross Jefferson County Chapter and the Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center.

The checks were distributed by St. Mark members Sonny and Jean Reitter and Charles and Charlene Pearce.

Thrivent has a group at St. Mark called the “Holy Rollers” that makes fruit, nut and poppy seed rolls during the holidays and also from June to October for sale at the Farmers Market in downtown Steubenville.

This enables the group to support local charities.
