Covenant World Relief
Covenant World Relief is an effective and efficient humanitarian aid ministry with a sixty-year history.
CWR collaborates with partners around the world to provide relief, rehabilitation and transformational development. These partnerships empower local ministries, increase local involvement, reduce overhead and facilitate immediate response to disaster and human suffering. Our charge is to love, serve and work together with the poor, the powerless, and the marginalized.

IF YOU MISSED THE THANKSGIVING SERVICE AND WOULD STILL LIKE TO DONATE TO COVENANT WORLD RELIEF YOU CAN GIVE YOUR DONATION TO OUR BOOKKEEPER, BRENDA VEEN, BY DEC. 1. CHECKS SHOULD BE MADE OUT TO THORNAPPLE WITH CWR ON THE MEMO LINE.
Thornapple has been a supporter of Covenant World Relief for many years. We designate late October and the month of November as a special time to raise funds to support Covenant World Relief. We use soup cans with special Covenant World Relief labels to collect donations in at home. Donations are then brought to the Thanksgiving service on November 24 at 6pm. So far over $45,750 has been donated. Thank you Thornapple!

Whether you provide a village with a sow; support a clean water project; or underwrite a school scholarship for a young child, your gift will make a difference in the lives of people around the world.
