On Saturday, September 17, 2016 Thrivent Financial partnered with Parkview Church in Homer Glen along with an organization called Side By Side. Together, they gathered an impressive amount of volunteers and prepared comfort packages for colon cancer patients that are currently undergoing chemo therapy.
NASCAR Driver, Michael McDowell who is sponsored by Thrivent was the speaker at this event. Michael spoke about the trust and the benefits of becoming a client of Thrivent Financial and how it has benefitted him. He shared about his faith in God and his family life along with some funny NASCAR stories. I will say that Michael has a peaceful and kind, laid back way about him. They played a video of an accident that we was in during a race and needless to say the room went quite. It’s a scary thing to watch. However, as soon as it was done, Mr. McDowell turned to us and made everyone laugh with a funny comment.
The event ended with a delicious barbecue for everyone to enjoy; but not before having the opportunity to get an autograph and picture with #95 NASCAR Driver, Michael McDowell. They also brought the Thrivent Race car for everyone to view and even climb into it. Many people got to scratch that off their bucket list!
Over 68 packages were made and will be delivered to Chicago Hospital. If you would like to find out more information about Side By Side, click HERE or to experience living generously and connecting faith and finances click HERE or visit Thrivent’s website Thrivent.com.
