A Convoy of Hope Community Event is a united act of compassion that helps families in desperate need. Local churches, businesses, community service and health organizations partner with us to provide guests with groceries, medical and dental screenings, prayer, haircuts, lunch, veteran services, music, a kids’ carnival, children’s shoes, job and career services, community services, family portraits and more — at no charge to guests. Approximately $1,000,000 worth of goods and services are provided to the 5,000-10,000 Guests of Honor who attend each event.
Communities are the heart of counties, states and nations. When families thrive; communities thrive. Convoy of Hope is committed to working with local volunteers, businesses, agencies, churches and organizations who believe in building strong communities.
In the United States, there are many communities where working-poor 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.
