St. Mark Lutheran Church makes donation to mission

Becky Hersko, an advocate for Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, presented a check for $500 to the Rev. Ashley Steele, executive director of Urban Mission Ministries, on behalf of St. Mark Lutheran Church for the Feinstein Hunger Challenge.

Founded in 1991 by Alan Shawn Feinstein, the Feinstein Foundation is dedicated to the alleviation of hunger and matches donations up to a $1 million to anti-hunger agencies throughout the country. The St. Mark church group, the Holy Rollers, bakes and sells fruit and nut rolls during the holidays and for the Steubenville Farmers Market and donates money to various charities in the Steubenville area.
