Hope Starts Here

A Convoy of Hope Community Event is a united act of compassion that helps families in need. Local churches, businesses, community service, and health organizations partner with us to provide guests with groceries, health services, haircuts, family portraits, job services, veteran services, a kids zone, a hot meal, new children’s shoes, and much more — all at no charge to guests. Approximately $1 million worth of goods and services are provided to the 5,000 to 10,000 Guests of Honor who attend each event.

Why Communities?

Communities are the lifeblood of counties, states, and nations. Convoy of Hope is committed to working with local volunteers, businesses, agencies, churches, and organizations who believe in building stronger communities through generosity and kindness.

In the U.S., there are many communities where vulnerable families struggle to put food on their tables. It’s in such situations that a free bag of groceries, the chance to visit with an employer about a job opportunity, a free life-saving health screening, or even a family portrait can serve as life-changing experiences that transform families and strengthen communities.

Our Approach

  • Community Partnerships

    Convoy of Hope’s community enrichment team works in advance with community leaders and stakeholders, forming partnerships that build the foundation for our outreach events. Partnership with local governments, organizations, churches, and business are crucial to the success of an event.

  • Volunteers

    Volunteers are an important part of every Community Event. Convoy of Hope engages with community members to build a volunteer base, establish a customized plan, and carry out the event.

  • Event Guests

    Event guests are treated as Guests of Honor. Thousands attend to experience a poverty-free day filled with free food, services, and hope. The heart and soul of every Community Event is compassion. Many Guests of Honor are from working families who are living in poverty, or are on the fringes of it. The goal of each Community Event is to help give them a hand up during difficult times.
