Convoy of Hope

Convoy of Hope had a local event that was held at five area schools on one Saturday morning last Fall.

A gal in our small group at church has been volunteering with her family for years. Her dad was heading up the groccery area and our group had the chance to volunteer with their family.

There had to be thousands of bags of groceries that had been packaged up into like groups and bagged into color coordinate bags. Each person who needed groceries was to be given at least one bag with red writing and one with green writing.

We unloaded many many bags of groceries that day, and needed a little help getting to the bottom of the boxes. Luckily, we had a little help on hand. My step-son Bailey was hard at work, hoppin into any box we needed him in.

And there were quite a few.

Convoy of Hope doesn't just provide groceries. At their community outreach events they offer free hair cuts, family portraits, medical and dental care, even a children's play area. We are a nation so blessed in so many way. It was a blessing to be a blessing.

For more information on who they are, what they do, where they go, or how to help, please visit their website.
