Super Bowl champion Bradley Pinion partners with Convoy of Hope for Community Event

Super Bowl champion Bradley Pinion teamed up with Convoy of Hope to host a Pro-Series Community Event in Clemson, South Carolina. The event featured free groceries, shoes, socks, haircuts, hygiene kits, hot meals, and NFL-style skills and drills for Guests of Honor to enjoy. 

“I’ve been partnering with Convoy of Hope since my rookie year and am so thankful that I can bring the Convoy Nation Pro-Series Community Event to the Clemson community — where I played college football,” Bradley said. “Any family who needs some help is welcome.”

The event helped meet immediate needs of those in the Clemson community. More than 600 people received help and hope that day.

“Oh mama, look at these shoes!” one child said, beaming with joy. “I’m going to run so fast now!”

Partnerships like Bradley Pinion’s help Convoy of Hope serve communities all around the world.

“Bradley has played a pivotal role in bringing Convoy of Hope to communities throughout his NFL career,” said Kirk Noonan, Vice President of Convoy Nation, a fan base of kindness with Convoy of Hope. “We are thankful for such a friend who is determined to give families help and hope.”

Thank you to our partners and supporters who make events like this possible.

Baltimore Finds a Way to Serve During COVID-19

Last year drastically changed how Convoy of Hope held Community Events. Even now — more than a year after the start of the pandemic — gone are the giant tents and meandering crowds of people that once defined these days of hope.

But hope is still being spread, regardless of the circumstances!

Convoy of Hope held a drive-thru Community Event in Baltimore at the end of March. Masked and socially distanced, close to 500 volunteers from five different churches and organizational partners served nearly 1,400 families in one day. In partnership with local businesses and organizations, we provided the basic resources that so many people still need.

Thank you for your diligent partnership as we continue to serve our struggling neighbors and the communities where they live. You are making a difference.

Inclement Weather Turns to Hope & Provision In Seattle Community

“The event was a success!” Pastor James Reyes of Charisma Seattle said. “To see those faces with tears and laughter, it made all of the preparation and hard work worth it.”

The odds were not in Pastor James’ favor as the date for Charisma Seattle’s walk and drive-thru grocery distribution drew nearer. Weather forecasts called for rain, hail, and snow throughout the weekend. Thankfully, the weather held off during the exact window of time the distribution needed to take place.

The team distributed more than 36,000 pounds of groceries, including canned goods, beverages, meal bars, fruit, and cereal. All of this arrived on a Convoy of Hope truck just days before.

Pastor James and his team recalled seeing people from all walks of life joining together to both give and receive help. Hundreds of grocery bags were given to families in the Seattle area.

“The generosity of Convoy of Hope is really making an impact — everywhere, but especially now in our community,” Pastor James concluded. Although COVID-19 has taken a significant toll on many in his community, he believes that events like this help spread hope in a time when it is needed most.

Charisma Seattle is planning another distribution event in the month of August. With your help, and through partnerships like Charisma Seattle’s, Convoy of Hope is getting closer to achieving our goal of feeding the world. Thank you for allowing us to give hope to those who need it most.
