This event is a fund raiser for Keith and Linda Axvig and their Sonshine Ministries. Much thanks to Thrivent Financial for helping fund this event through their Thrivent Action Teams.
Sonshine ministries is a group of retired people who bring food, clothing, and educational supplies to poor Mexicans living just across the border from their retirement village. In later years, they have also been involved in the building of small churches and homes (often parsonages) in the communities they minister to. Keith and Linda will be at the event and have brochures available that explain their work. They will also be accepting donations of soap, toothpaste, yarn, crochet supplies, and school supplies.
