Twenty-three members and friends of St. Peter’s worked on three projects during the weekend: the construction of a storage building with a large attached overhang for out camp; painting the swimming pool; and preparing the camp’s garden for planting.
A $2,000 grant to purchase materials for the out camp building was provided by the Greater Victoria Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans through its Care Abounds in Communities chapter care program. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans provides funding for members participating in community service teams. These teams are formed to conduct fund-raising activities and/or hands-on service activities. Activities can benefit individuals, families, local communities or organizations that are exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, excluding congregations.
