The Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania Thrivent Chapter No. 30763 of St. Mark Lutheran Church, 133 Lovers Lane, Steubenville, recently presented four $600 checks to the Salvation Army of Steubenville, Urban Mission Ministries, American Red Cross Jefferson County Chapter and the Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center.
The checks were distributed by John and Becky Hersko.
Thrivent has a group called the "Holy Rollers" at St. Mark 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, according to a news release.
The Mary of Bethany Ladies Guild of St. Mark also were involved in the project.
