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.
Involved in the check presentation for the Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center were, from left, Sonny Reitter, Jean Reitter, Connie Buydasz, the clinic’s administrative assistant, Charlene Pearce and Charles Pearce.
This enables the group to support local charities.
