When disaster strikes, Christians are among the first to look for ways to help those in need, whether it means lending a helping hand or making a monetary donation.

- Donate. Make a personal donation. Thrivent will match individual personal donations – up to $1 million – made through Thrivent.com to assist specific disaster relief organizations.* Eligible members can also direct Choice Dollars®.
- Volunteer. Thrivent members can share their time and talent to help with recovery efforts by leading a volunteer Thrivent Action Team.
