Convoy of Hope, based in Springfield, Missouri, has been working diligently to make sure children and families receive food, water and emergency supplies. “We have to keep going. This isn’t the time to stop. Millions still need our help to get through this crisis,” says Hal Donaldson, Convoy of Hope president.
Recently, the Pittsburgh Steelers, NASCAR, and other groups partnered with Convoy of Hope to distribute food to thousands of families. “This is a united act of compassion,” says Donaldson. “Corporations, churches, and civic groups are coming together to make sure people are fed.”
At a recent distribution in Adel, Georgia, Convoy of Hope volunteers and partners distributed food and household supplies to more than 800 people. Bethany Burrows, a Convoy of Hope team member, said some families drove 40 miles for the food and supplies. “The lines of cars stretched for two miles throughout the day,” she said.
