Water to Wine for Volunteer Week 2023
Every April, Thrivent recognizes Volunteer Month with various employee activities, and this year they really hit it out of the ballpark with the Wine to Water Filter Build initiative. You may have seen our invitation to our annual Spring BBQ where we highlighted a 'water filter build' for this organization, or received an email from Thrivent offering a free water filter build kit to be sent to your home? When we received the first notification of this offer from our home office, we enthusiastically responded with a 'yes, we will participate!' - having NO IDEA what we were really signing up for. When the box arrived with our first (5) water filter kits, we were shocked at how small the kits and the shipping box were. So small! But after reading more about the organization on their website, www.winetowater.org, we were so excited to be a part of this project. We immediately ordered (5) more kits.
As you can see from our pictures, Thrivent members LOVE to do things - and in this case, they loved the water filter build project. So simple, yet so very effective. The water filters were assembled, repackaged, and returned to Wine to Water in North Carolina for inspection and shipping to their end users in the various locations they serve, including Nepal, the Amazon, Tanzania, Dominican Republic, and Haiti. However, this is not all that Wine to Water achieves. They have several other projects serving these communities, including Water4Schools, Disaster Relief, Health Care facilities, and other training programs for communities.
You can support this organization directly through their website or by sponsoring a water filter build event like ours. Go to www.winetowater.org to find out more. Thank you to our fabulous volunteers who laughed and prayed over our own small project. We appreciate you!
Meet My Team
Compass Financial Group
For the Flowers family, the past few years have brought about many changes and the trends continues today! Perry, her husband, Jeff, and their son, Haden, made 'the big move' from Hideaway Lake to Tyler in early 2020. Shortly thereafter, Perry exchanged a career as a Physical Therapist for a career with Thrivent as a Financial Advisor, and ultimately partnered with Steve to form Compass Financial Group in Tyler.
Her interests as a Financial Advisor are strongest in college planning strategies and meeting, engaging and financially educating women. When she's not at the office, you can find her and her family at the tennis courts, playing golf, or playing soccer with friends.
