Health and Wellness Ministry Reaches $10,000 Goal

After receiving the “Matthew 25: Neighbors in Need” Grant from Thrivent Financial earlier this year, Northern Door Health & Wellness Ministry (NDHWM) was awarded the opportunity to participate in a challenge grant program. For every dollar donated before Feb. 28, the Thrivent Foundation would match 50 cents on the dollar (up to an additional $5,000 grant). The organization raised more than $10,000 by the deadline.

NDHWM, an all-volunteer ecumenical ministry in northern Door County, is thankful for the opportunity to participate in this program. The ministry’s goal is to identify those in the community who are at risk for health-related issues and facilitate a support system that encourages the highest quality of life and level of independence, and promote good health habits.
