“We’re incredibly grateful to have reached this milestone, but now isn’t the time to take a step back.” —Hal Donaldson
SPRINGFIELD, MO. — July 23, 2020 — Convoy of Hope has delivered more than 50 million meals in more than 46 states in response to COVID-19. “Less than four months ago, we embarked on a mission to deliver 10 million meals to Americans affected by the coronavirus,” said Hal Donaldson, Convoy of Hope president. “We were pleased to reach that goal in a matter of weeks.”
Convoy of Hope’s fleet of semi-trucks continue to roll across the nation delivering food and much needed relief to communities hit hard by the pandemic. “While we’ve accomplished a lot because of the generosity of donors, corporations, churches and civic groups, there’s still so much need — and it’s not going away any time soon,” said Donaldson. “We’re incredibly grateful to have reached this milestone, but now isn’t the time to take a step back.”
In addition, Convoy of Hope has provided millions of meals to children and families around the world that are struggling to survive the pandemic.
