Convoy of Hope Responds to Public Health Emergency in Louisiana

Convoy of Hope has sent three truckloads of water to St. Joseph, La. after Governor John Bel Edwards declared a Public Health Emergency. Officials found water in the area contaminated with lead and copper.

Residents have been advised to use an alternative source of water for drinking, preparing food and brushing their teeth while the water system is being repaired.

The National Guard is also providing water and we will continue to work with our local partners to identify what is needed in the days ahead.

A Legacy of Hope

Betty Donaldson Foote was the mother of our president, Hal Donaldson. Her perseverance, strength and compassion are the very reasons Convoy of Hope exists today.

Betty passed away in December of 2016 and a generous friend of Convoy of Hope offered a lead gift of $50,000 to start the Betty Donaldson Foote Memorial Fund. This endowment fund will create longevity and perpetuity for Convoy’s programs throughout the world.

“My family and the Convoy family are very grateful for the friends that set up this fund,” says Hal Donaldson. “I know my mother would be proud that her legacy of kindness will carry on through the work of our organization.”

For more information on how you can donate to the Betty Donaldson Foote Memorial Fund, please contact Jaimie Trussell at (417) 851-4589.
