Convoy of Hope Responds to Six Disasters Over Two Weeks

Convoy of Hope has distributed more than 1 million pounds of supplies as it has responded to multiple disasters in the Midwest and South.
Monday, June 3, marked the 12th day since Convoy of Hope began responding to severe weather across the Midwest and in the South. Over the previous 11 days, its staff and volunteers have provided more than 1 million pounds of relief supplies in 41 communities across five states. Those numbers reflect six separate responses: Missouri tornado response, Missouri flood response, Oklahoma flood response, Ohio tornado response, Kansas tornado response, and Arkansas flood response.

“The unprecedented number of disasters within a short time has created a scenario similar to a major disaster event — positioning Convoy’s response to be at a heightened level,” says Jeff Nene, Convoy of Hope’s national spokesperson. “Our team is responding to communities to bring help and hope to those who are in need during a terribly difficult time.”

Currently, Convoy still has teams deployed in Oklahoma and Ohio. On Sunday, Convoy also deployed to Fort Smith, Arkansas, distributing resources alongside Life Church’s Fort Smith campus. The Springfield, Missouri-based compassion organization is closely monitoring flood levels on the Arkansas River and those who would be affected by its historic flooding.
