Thank You!

…To all our sponsors and volunteers for making the Lutheran Brotherhood’s "Join Hands Day" for the St. Nazianz a HUGE SUCCESS!

The numbers are in and the impact was huge! Thanks to all our sponsors/donors and volunteers for making Lutheran Brotherhood’s "Join Hands Day" for St. Nazianz a big success. On June 24, 7 Lutheran Brotherhood branches raised $26,248.80 for victims of the wind storm that devastated St. Nazianz and the surrounding area this past spring. This does not reflect the total donation of trees, shrubs, flowers, and the food/catering that was donated, making a total impact of over $56,000. Your generosity and support have been outstanding.
