Thrivent Financial and Habitat for Humanity of Central Iowa (HFHCI) were present in Huxley at the ground-blessing ceremony for the eighth “Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity” house for HFHCI. Craig and Kathie Sommerfeld, Kreg Tool Company, donated $25,000 from their foundation, Kreg Cares. Thrivent presented HFHCI with $51,250 to build the Thrivent Builds home, as Thrivent Builds and HFHCI once again join together on a building project. Pastor Tom Prochnow, Habitat board president, gave the ground blessing and Gerald Holtan, president of the Story County Chapter of Thrivent Financial, gave the welcome. Sandi Risdal, Habitat executive director, thanked everyone for their attendance.
